“The early 2020 Vintage conditions were similar to those of 2009 with plentiful sunshine, little rainfall and relatively cool growing conditions. The canopies in March were balanced, matched crop load, and the fruit sat at around 10 Baume having just completed veraison.
This vintage we trialled one new organic yeast and had hints of smoke smoke from nearby bushfires. Baileys finished up the last fruit intake for vintage 2020 just before Easter with a total of 2,140 tonnes processed.
With generally lower crops, but good ripening conditions, this year’s crush passed very well and we are looking forward to producing some great wines.”
