Above-average winter and spring rainfall provided healthy soil moisture profiles for the growing season. Cool days and cooler nights slowed vine growth in early spring with temperatures warming in October. A mild and mostly dry start to summer was followed by two significant rain events in February. Rainfall slowed in early autumn with a high heat cycle quickly following. Moving into March, mild days slowed the ripening with cool nights and warm days persisting until harvest.
