Mild winter conditions resulted
in early budburst and strong early
season growth. A warm spring with
a distinct lack of wind allowed for
strong canopy growth and Pisa
avoided the frosts that hit other
areas. Flowering began in early
December along with winds thats
disrupted some of the whites
flowering. January began with a
heavy rain event and the ensuing
humid conditions resulted in some
powdery mildew appearing. Fine
weather through the remainder
of the growing season allowed
for beautiful ripening and whilst
the crop was lower than usual,
the quality of the fruit was
excellent. Judicious hand harvesting
and sorting, resulted in very high
quality fruit entering the winery.
