Canberra wine growers and makers hail bumper grape season
Grapegrowers and winemakers in the Canberra district are hailing a bumper 2015 season, following what have been described by many as the best growing conditions in years. This year grape quality and crop volumes are excellent, according to premium Shiraz grapegrower Brian Binning from Yass.
The harvest can be a lottery, but Binning said things were shaping up well for one of the best years on record. “It’s very good harvest – the best we’ve had since we grafted our vines over to Shiraz,” he said.
