Seasonal Overview 2014

Perdeberg Winery is looking forward to an outstanding season, with good healthy grapes and well balanced wines. Recent weather patterns in the Perdeberg region have really favoured this year’s harvest. A sufficiently cold winter has helped produce a good and even bud, and the Spring cold frontal system brought 30% extra rain which helped with soil moisture.

 

There was no wind damage and, with enough soil moisture, vigorous growth ensued and provided good canopies … a positive for the dry land vines because they were protected against sunburn and therefore ripened beautifully.

 

With summer only really starting at the end of November 2013, the vineyards had a slow start and this means the harvest will be about two weeks later than usual.
