The earlier than expected 2016 harvest delivered fruit with excellent varietal characters resulting in wine with an ideal balance of sugar, acid, colour and flavour.
The mild weather conditions during spring were followed by warmer than usual February temperatures. The odd burst of extreme heat resulted in an early start to vintage, bringing forward the ripening of some varietals and shortening the harvest time.
