Yarra Valley Mid-Harvest Report 2024

The Yarra Valley is currently buzzing with activity with the 2024 harvest season in mid-swing. This is a crucial time for local winemakers. And at Kangaroo Ridge Retreat, (and you know us…famous for our luxury accommodation and our handpicked selection of the finest local wines), we’re intimately attuned to the vineyards’ pulses. Our connections give us a front-row seat to the unfolding story of this year’s harvest, letting us in on the hushed whispers and buoyant expectations swirling through the rows of vines.

This year has brought its challenges, notably the wettest January on record, coupled with a testing yield. But, our adept viticulturists have navigated these trials with grace and skill, uncovering a harvest that sings with bold flavors and lively acidity. This achievement stands as a tribute to the enduring spirit of the Yarra Valley’s winemakers and the rich tapestry of our terroir. It also lays the groundwork for an enchanting romantic autumn getaway or a peaceful retreat into the embrace of nature’s beauty.

As we celebrate the romance and resilience of the Yarra Valley, we’re thrilled to unveil a special addition that perfectly complements these moments of connection and discovery: the Kangaroo Ridge Retreat Autumn Wine Box.
