The Turning Of The Seasons

Grapes have an annual life cycle and each season plays a vital role in that cycle.

 

Winter

For us here at Pfeiffer Wines, our new year begins after our “pfabulous” and “pfamous” Winery Walkabout which is held every Queen’s Birthday Weekend in June. It is then, in the depths of Winter, that we start pruning the vineyard. Bbrrrr! Yes it is cold but this short time of 10 weeks is when the vines are dormant and can be cut or rather pruned, in a particular way which will determine the way the vine will perform for the next harvest time in the actual New Year. By the end of August the pruning job has been done and each vine now knows exactly what it is expected to do.

Vintage Report 2013

The lead up to vintage 2013 was promising, with dry conditions throughout the growing season.  January 2013 saw temperatures soar, causing sugar levels to rise rapidly, and a return to an early February start for vintage.  Reds particularly ripened early, and we actually commenced vintage with our 2013 Carlyle Vineyard Shiraz (the first time a red has been the first variety harvested at Pfeiffer Wines).

We celebrated Chris’s 40th vintage this year with many "pfriends" and Wine Club members at masterclasses and dinners during Tastes of Rutherglen in March. However, there were a lot of disappointed "pfriends" who missed out on those limited events.
