An early Spring with light easterlies breezes provided successful flowering and a good fruit set. Light rain from the beginning of January made for balmy growing conditions. Vine vigor was at unprecendented levels and the vineyard staff made many more ‘passes’ through the vineyard than they would have in other seasons. This included trimming and leaf plucking to ensure that the suns energy made it to the fruit and not just to leafy foliage. 2016 was a challenging vintage but the quality of the fruit was rewarding.

The fruit was destemmed before being gently pressed to stainless tanks for cold fermentation to pressure and enhance aromatics. At dryness the wine was stablised and bottled while still young and fresh.
