Good long winter, but late rains and cold delaying pruning. Great windless conditions experienced during flowering resulted in a high yielding vintage. February temperatures were extremely hot pushing ripening and this made for a quick harvest. Highest recorded tonnages for Waterford Estate. Whites were challenging and the red wines have seriously impressed.
