Maximum Daily Temperature watch: temperatures have risen this week Friday 26 January 2007 (calibrate your knowledge of South Burnett vineyards!): Moffatdale 32 oC, Jimbour 35 oC, Pokolbin 32 oC, Ballandean 34oC (very unusual), Stirling-Adelaide Hills 23 oC, Mildura 38 oC, Gingin 43oC (Swan WA).

Vintage elsewhere: McLaren Vale has started on sauvignon blanc and chardonnay next week (rain has caused splitting-note South Australia does have rain during vintage). The Hunter Valley are three weeks into harvesting as is Mildura (rain also last week raised the threat of fruit rots).
