Vineyard Notes
The lead up to 2016 was superb, beautiful cool and dry conditions providing excellent clean and healthy fruit and canopies. The wettest January since 1972 followed with picking pushed back to see the period out This was followed by one of the driest Februarys on record which saved most of the vineyards, with picking a few weeks behind average with lower than normal crops. The grapes were then predominantly hand-picked to ensure only the best fruit was taken and the resultant wines clean and fresh.
