VINTAGE

2016 was an unusually dry growing season, but daily temperatures were fairly mild. These conditions resulted in the earliest harvest we have ever had. The berries show intense perfume and great flavour which has produced exceptional balanced wines.

WINEMAKING

Whole bunch pressed and settled overnight. Clear juice was fermented in stainless steel tank at low temperature to retain the fresh fruit purity of the grapes. Once completely dry, the wine was simply stabilised and bottled in late June.
