The growing season began with above average rainfall that filled soil profiles, however spring and summer were dry , with temperatures slightly above average. Early lignification and flavour development allowed for picking at optimum flavour ripeness, without excessive sugar. Harvest was relatively early , with whites showing bright , varietal aromas and balanced acidity .

Clare Dry - Winemaker

During her teens, Clare's interest in horticulture led to work experience at a winery on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula where she grew up. It took just two days of work experience for her to know she wanted a career in the wine industry. After high school, Clare enrolled in a Bachelor of Oenology (Wine Science) at Adelaide University and then, with a thirst for more practical knowledge before recommencing study, took a gap year to work on a vintage on the Mornington Peninsula, and a second in the Pfalz region of Germany.

Since her graduation in 2007, Clare has been a key member of the Wolf Blass team and works alongside her colleagues to ensure the guiding principles behind each wine are met.

Clare has a strong interest in cool climate wines and is particularly fond of the Adelaide Hills, where she spends a lot of time in vineyards during vintage assessing grapes for harvest, especially Pinot Noir.
