THE HARVEST
Weather patterns are definitely changing. 2015 was an early harvest but 2016 was earlier still, by 4 days. This was the end result of a long, dry and warm summer. 2016 Is a challenge for the fruit driven white varietals. These less than favourable conditions were countered by good canopy management and early morning picking.

IN THE CELLAR
The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and made in a fresh style to maintain the natural flavours.
