It has been a slow start to vintage this year however, in reality, it is more like our “usual” Hunter Valley vintage timeframe. We have experienced some exceedingly hot weather this summer so fruit ripening on the vines has decelerated.
In saying this though, the fruit looks to be of exceptional quality so we can expect to see some fantastic wines coming out of 2019.
The Petersons Winemaking Team are looking forward to what they believe will be an excellent vintage at this point in time. There is much anticipation around our Italian fruit varieties out of Mudgee and our Mt View Hunter Valley Chardonnay. These wines should be stunning this season.
Also in 2019, Petersons will be releasing a 2017 Back Block Shiraz. Given this is our flagship wine, it goes without saying that this wine is absolutely divine and is sure to be a popular choice for the cellar.
From all of us in the Winery, Happy New Year and here’s to a fantastic 2019.
