Grape quality ‘exceptionally good’
It was an ”intense” wine harvest for Central Otago vineyards this year but fruit quality is ”exceptionally good”. That is the word from Central Otago Winegrowers Association president James Dicey who said harvesting was all but finished for the region. ”We are overjoyed with the quality and quantity with what we have got,” he said. Grapes going through fermentation were very aromatic with concentrated, intense colours, Dicey said.
