Well, I think everyone in the Margaret River Region will unanimously agree that the 2023 vintage was a cracker! The fruit quality is sensational and overall yields were high!
At Lentedal we commenced with our first pick of Chardonnay on Wednesday 22 February 2023 and officially wrapped up vintage for our wines on Tuesday 28 March 2023 with a late-night harvest of our Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, and Shiraz.
As usual this year we did a combination of hand picking and machine harvesting – this for us at Lentedal is all dependent on fruit varietals. You can learn more about the difference between these two methods over on our blog via this link.
So, what wine can you expect to see from our 2023 Vintage!? Well, we’re very lucky in that although we’re a small producer we have a lot of interesting varieties in our vineyard, giving us flexibility in what wines we produce each year… and this year we’re changing things up a little, in addition to our normal wine list, we’ll also be releasing the following 2023 wines over the next 12 months:
- Sparkling Pinot Gris Blanc De Blanc
- Pinot Grigio
