Vintage Notes: A very good season for growth, with the farm and vineyard experiencing periods of
rain regularly . Some drier more classic Central Otago spells experienced in January and
February, and healthy plants were vibrant and strong in both vineyard and property throughout
the season. We had some frost to navigate in April, but around this a favourable slow extended
ripening. Overall the seasons temperatures were moderate, which preserved wonderful balance
