Vintage report

With perfect December flowering conditions, the hottest January on record and the wettest February by far, vintage 2018 was ripe with challenges. Tropical cyclones in late summer, a sunny but wet March returning to average conditions in April. In the end it was Marlborough’s warmest ever growing season and for those who took necessary actions to prevent disease the quality was high. At 313,038 tonnes, the region’s growers handled 77.4 per cent of New Zealand’s total grape harvest.
