Clare Valley Wine Better with Age

wine 5

It has been reported by Bank SA as part of their ‘Rural Price Index’ that South Australia’s wine industry has taken a significant hit over the last 6 months, but it might not all be bad news.

Weather conditions including extreme heat, early frosts, wind around flowering time and our state’s recent bushfires have heavily impacted the industry, with what has been predicted as an 80% reduction in this year’s yields in the Clare Valley.

These conditions, although not ideal, have led to a spread-out vintage, offering higher quality flavours for the consumer.

Now is a better time than ever to visit the Clare Valley with the long weekend upon us and many wineries opening up once again following the lifting of the Government’s restrictions.
