The team at Grace Farm is thrilled to announce the completion of yet another successful vintage! The 2023 season has been nothing short of spectacular, particularly for the white varieties. The Viticulturist, Tim Quinlan, has shared his thoughts on the season, and we're excited to share them with you.
According to Tim, the 2023 vintage was a game of patience, thanks to the cooler than usual weather in December and January. However, once the sun started shining, it was smooth sailing. The slower build-up of sugars due to the cooler weather resulted in a fantastic accumulation of flavours in the fruit, which is an excellent outcome.
While the last two weeks brought a fair amount of rain, drawing out the season, the reds were on the vines a little longer than they have been historically. However, the Wilyabrup region's unique geographic location and terroir is very forgiving and this played a significant role in producing high-quality fruit.
Tim is thrilled with the overall results of the 2023 vintage and is looking forward to reaping the rewards of their hard work and dedication in every bottle. With such fantastic weather and an exceptional harvest, we're excited to share the fruits of our labour with you.
