The fruit was harvested in the cool of the night to preserve freshness and quality. Cool fermented in stainless steel with a small parcel on French oak with lees stirring to give length and roundness to the palate. The mild weather conditions during spring with warm February temperatures and 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. Whites were picked at night and reds just before dawn in the cooler temperatures to retain optimal flavour development. 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.
