There was relatively high rainfall over winter which resulted in slightly later budburst with good growing conditions throughout spring. Winds were a factor during flowerings poor fruit set meant smaller bunches and lower crops through our vineyard as well as extremes: 40-plus days, cold temperatures, storms, strong winds and large amounts of water in the space of a few hours. Overall our wines from this vintage are some of our best, we only wish we were able to produce more!!

Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented in stainless steel tanks using only wild yeasts and temperature controlled. Once fermented the wine is left to age on lees for 3 months to impart creaminess and texture on the palate, once racked the wine is aged in stainless steel for another 3 months before being bottled.
