snow time, big time!

24 August 2011

In line with previous reports, our unusual season continues - we have just had a record snowfall ! The whole country was hit by a very unusually strong Antarctic blast that persisted for 3 – 4 days in August. Airports and schools were closed and even Lola froze. We haven’t slowed up though, the Aussies are here for the skiing and have taken a liking to our wine. The cellar door has been flat out keeping up, especially when the inclement weather closes the skifields for the day. The wines are looking good and we have just bottled the first of the 2011’s – the Sauvignon Blanc. John managed to get a beer brew underway as well - an Indian Pale Ale. As the saying goes, “It takes a lot of beer to make good wine”.
