Australia, 2013

The 2013 growing season was dry with above average temperatures, the spring rains didn’t arrive and February saw heat waves, particularly in South Australia, New South Wales and Victoria.

A shortened growing season meant low yields, but those who irrigated early and sufficiently well, and picked at the right time made some great wines. The heat also meant that there was very little disease. Western Australia and New South Wales experienced more rainfall, detrimentally so in some instances in the latter state.

    "Remember that old Heinz Ketchup “anticipation” ad from the 1970s? The palate of this 2015 Grange does just that. It makes you wait with so much delicious promise being drip fed into the mouth at first—and then it bursts forth and delivers! Oh, yes." Robert Parker
