The Pyrenees Range is the first land feature to obstruct the prevailing West wind, carrying moisture from the Indian Ocean across the Great Australian Bight, which is then precipitated. Rainfall is about 600 mm per year falling mainly in winter and spring. The altitude moderates the climate so that we have no spring frosts but warm summer days with cool nights. The remarkable clearness of the air allows for wonderful light intensity. Having low yielding vines, this adds to the complexity of flavour in the resulting wine. The dry clean atmosphere and light night breezes in Summer ensure no mould or fungus disease problems.
