VITICULTURE

Climate:

The budburst timing was slightly later than normal and the vines experienced typical spring like conditions of variable temperatures, winds and rain.  Early varieties, such Pinot Noir, flowered in cooler conditions leading to smaller yields.  Other varieties had warm, dry conditions over flowering, resulting in healthy crop levels.  In mid-December, the weather became warm and dry.  January was notable for strong winds that parched the landscape. The later part of the season recorded lower sunshine hours, resulting in delayed sugar ripeness and a later start to harvest

 

Soils:

Silty loam over free draining gravels

 

Training:

Standard vertical trellis

 

Harvest Dates:

April 5th – 12th, 2017.

WINEMAKING

Most of the fruit for this wine was machine harvested during the cool Autumn mornings. Approximately 10% of the fruit was hand harvested and fermented separately. Post fermentation, the wine spent approximately 4 months on lees, after which the wine was blended, filtered and finally bottled on the 7th November, 2017.
