Vinification Good winter rain sent welcome traditional floodwaters through the Creek, providing deep soil moisture. Strong winds during flowering reduced yields, and while lake breezes in the Creek tempered hot summer conditions, McLaren Vale bore the brunt of the heat. Spared the worst of the February deluge to the north, the 30-40mm received helped reduce temperatures, allowing fruit to ripen steadily.
