Overview

Heat wave conditions caused great concern amongst Winemakers and Viticulturists alike, leading up to the 2009 harvest. Luckily, as quickly as the heat came, it reduced to a more manageable level and most vines made a full recovery to ripen in a nice slow and steady manner. 2009 produced many good parcels of fruit and some absolutely outstanding wines were made. This Shiraz being no exception.
