Cantera Barrel Club – vintage 2021
The 2021 Hawke’s Bay vintage was slightly cooler than both 2019 and 2020 though still continued the warmer-than-average trend of the last 4 years. Flowering was five to 10 days early and normal temperatures were experienced until the end of January. It was a drier-than-average season, but the moderate summer meant no excessive vine stress was evident and harvest weather was reasonably stable and favourable. The result? A very good to exceptional Hawke’s Bay vintage, and one we are proud to craft the Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Cabernet Franc for our 2021 CRU Omahu Cantera from.
