Stunning Weather for New Zealand Vintage 2013

New Zealand Vintage 2013

The 2013 New Zealand grape harvest is well underway with the outlook for the vintage buoyed by the stunning summer weather according to New Zealand Winegrowers.

“The warm dry summer of 2013 has been absolutely perfect for growing and ripening grapes. As we move into autumn, still with warm days and now slightly cooler nights prevailing, the prospect is for an outstanding vintage in all our grapegrowing regions” said New Zealand Winegrowers Chief Executive Officer Philip Gregan.

The 2013 grape harvest commenced in mid/late February in northern regions and will conclude in early May.

“If the grapes harvested to date are any indication then vintage 2013 will be one to remember.”
