Vintage 2008

Well, This was a good year after the seasons travails- bushfire smoke, heat and rain.  Unfortunately, the production was not great, and the wine tasted awful because I blended it with some other wine. Ah well, so we had brandy instead.
    But it was a great harvest, my friend Travis and the girls pitched in too at harvest time, there to help as can be seen below. Plenty to make a few bottles that were actually quite good.
