Overview

The 2013 growing season and vintage provided many challenges for growing and winemaking in the Great Southern region. The Spring temperatures and rainfall were consistent with yearly averages. However, hot spells throughout the summer months, particularly late December and January, saw little rain (just ~27mm) until harvest. This particularly hot and dry period put stress on some blocks to maintain crop levels. The 2013 vintage saw many white varieties at Forest Hill harvested earlier than usual. Though the dry spell brought harvest dates forward, all of Forest Hill’s dry grown blocks retained intrinsic natural acidity and consistent flavour profile.
