2016 Vintage details

The growing season was a little slow to start with unpredictable cold temperatures - there was some frost damage throughout the region. It was very dry up until Christmas and flowering conditions near perfect. Some good rains in January and February resulted in healthy canopies. This was followed by a very warm autumn, 30 degree days were common. Harvest commenced mid-March. Chardonnay yields were lighter than usual.
