VINTAGE

Vintage 2016 was marked by warm and dry conditions and the Mornington Peninsula harvest was one of the earliest on record. It arrived in a hurry too and many vignerons were picking in early February. The resulting wines have excellent flavour and weight with relatively low acid, so tend be earlier drinking styles.   

WINEMAKING

The fruit was picked from early-February to mid-February and was destemmed and sorted. Part of this wine was fermented in open fermenters with hand plunging and part in closed fermenter with pumping over. It was matured for nine months, part in French oak barriques and part in tank on quality French oak barrel staves.
