Harvest 2009 Begins at Glen Carlou
The 2009 harvest has started with a bang at Glen Carlou!
On Wednesday 28th January our first load of Chardonnay grapes arrived, four days later than the 2008 harvest.
The winemakers are impressed with the quality and flavours of the grapes. The cooler weather proves for ideal conditions and makes it much easier in the cellar. So far, Sauvingon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir have been crushed. The Chardonnay is already in barrel fermenting away with the wonderful smells permeating from the cellar into the tasting room.
As Arco says, " it is a double thumbs up so far for harvest 2009!" "Outstanding potential" says Cellar Master and CEO David Finlayson.
We will keep you posted as we progress through the harvest.
