About 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.

Yield: 10t/ha
In The Cellar
The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and made in a fresh style to maintain the natural flavours.
