The season for the Geographe wine region was cool and dry. The five months until the end of January had yielded little rain, about 70mm less than the same period last year
The cooler weather also disrupted flowering and fruit set resulting in much smaller bunch sizes and high incidence of hen and chicken.
The January 2019 average temperature of 21.3 was two degrees Celsius lower than the 23.3 of 2016.
