2015 vintage down by 27%

It’s been a cracker of a vintage, according to NZ Winegrowers ceo, Philip Gregan, who wrote “we enjoyed a fabulous summer which provided excellent conditions for ripening grapes across the country”

In fact Gregan probably regards 2015 as a bit of a hat trick. He wrote of the 2014 vintage “All grapegrowing regions experienced very favourable growing conditions” and also waxed eloquent about the 2013 vintage “An outstanding New Zealand summer provided near perfect conditions for growing grapes across the country”.
