Morris of Rutherglen Vintage 2020 Update

03rd July 2020 | Written by client

“The ancient Rutherglen region endured an interesting vintage this year, with a late but much-needed downpour combating the raging bushfires. Mild conditions throughout the growing season with low rainfall and a couple of warm weeks following Christmas led to less canopy growth causing the grapes to be two weeks behind with the crush starting in late February.

Overall, it was one of the coolest vintages on record, giving excellent conditions for flavour development and the slowing of Baume helped to further concentrate these flavours for world class grapes. We didn’t do anything differently this year, instead sticking to our well-tried methods and proven techniques.
Our final crush was around 250-270 tonnes.”

-David Morris, Chief Winemaker
