An “exceptional” South Australian wine vintage will soon be on its way to retail shelves.
- SA winemakers say they are having an excellent vintage and that wine will be high-quality
- Seasonal conditions in the Clare Valley are the best they’ve been in 10 years
- It’s welcome news for an industry that has faced challenges of huge tariffs in China
Winemakers picking grapes across the state say that quality is very high, and yield is high too thanks largely to favourable seasonal conditions.
It is welcome news for an industry that has struggled through Chinese tariffs and slowing domestic demand.
Peter Warr from Kilikanoon Wines said the mild conditions were good for the taste of the wine as well as yields.
