Don’t know about the rest of the country, but it is seriously warm here in Hawkes Bay, and the last rain was bit of a fizzer – only 6mm and that is now just another evaporation statistic. Couldn’t be better for the grapes though, except that the big dry has caused a bit of stress on the vines if we didn’t keep the water up. Caused a bit of stress on the growers too. However, flavours should be outstanding this year, particularly for the reds.
The other outstanding thing is the credit crunch and the sudden lurch from hedonism to sack cloth. Research has shown that people don’t stop drinking in leaner economic times, they just trade down a little. So we thought we would come to the party and offer some “ lean times” pricing to ensure you can maintain the anaesthetic levels where you want them.
