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 Challenge is the cellar is to capture the full potential of each batch of grapes. After sorting, destemming and crushing 50% of the grapes had skin contact for 6—12 hours. Only the free-run juice was used for this wine. The wine was fermented in stainless steal tanks and left onthe lees for 2 months.
