Jacobs Creek, Barossa Valley, South Australia
The distant sun casts its rays through the branches and leaves, illuminating the colours of the vineyard as the deep dark of the night sky gives way to the gradual radiance of morning.
Many viticulturists and winemakers will tell you that this is their favourite time, the pain of an early start instantly forgotten as they witness the break of day in the vineyard.
For those who, so far, have had to make do with romantic pictures of misty vines lit up by shards of sunlight we have good news - there has never been more variety or more opportunity to awaken among the rolling hills of Australia’s glorious wine regions.
