about the harvest: Good rainfalls and cool weather during winter ensured good nutrient storage by the vines. The early summer saw mild temperatures with some cool evenings emulating into an even budding period. Above average temperatures during summer and the latter ripening periods made for an early but intensive harvest. The 2011 harvest saw average yields of healthy grapes with good primary fruit aromas and concentration of the young wines. Should be a good vintage for the Cape Red Varietals.
