After a mild and relatively dry winter, resulted in flowering with mostly good set. The ripening period during summer was relatively warm, which saw harvest commence up to 7 days earlier than long term averages. Yields were high with good acidity retention and excellent, balanced flavours.
It was whole bunch pressed and allowed to settle overnight, then fermented cool in stainless steel tank. Once dry, it was simply prepared for bottling in late June, so the pure fruit drive of the wine was preserved with minimal artefact or intervention.
