Winemaker’s Comments
Crop levels in 2016 were slightly above average due to an excellent fruit set. Good rain in late January/early February gave the vines a much needed drink after a very dry spring. This sustained the vines during a mild February, ensuring the fruit could reach full flavour ripeness without excessive sugar levels.

Food Match
Wagyu char grilled steak, Osso Bucco.
