Show Time!

The Perth Royal Wine ShowThe Perth Royal Wine Show was started in 1843 and is the premier wine judging event in Western Australia. This year we are entering our incredibly popular (and awarded!) 2012 Reisling and our 2015 Vintage Reisling.

Wine shows are not only a great way to feature your wines and get great exposure for your winery, they also offer a learning experience. From understanding what the judges are looking in the different varietals to what other wineries are accomplishing across the state. 

We are delivering our wines at the show grounds this week and will be keeping our fingers crossed and ears open for the judges announcements.

The Darling Buds of Chardonnay

The first buds have appeared on the Chardonnay with other vines only a couple of weeks away. Although the south coast is in need of more rain, it does gladden the soul to see signs of Spring in the vineyard. The first buds have appeared on the Chardonnay with other vines only a couple of weeks away. This is early, but a recent bout of unseasonably warm weather may have prompted this burst of activity. 

It does remind us also of the things we now need to get stuck into including:

  • general tidy up around the vineyard for season to come,
  • training new vines, 
  • replacing any old trellis posts that aren't going to make it through the next vintage,
  • spraying of our organic miticide and insecticide,
  • vineyard equipment maintenance and 
  • the very exciting process of bottling our Chardonnay - Rose - SSB, I'll show you a photo when this one is done!

I hope spring is doing what it needs to where you are and I look forward to a sunny afternoon on the deck with a glass of Chardonnay - Rose - SSB!
