Spring rainfall was below average which helped disease control and provided dry conditions for the flowering period. This dry spell lingered through summer and with the expert water usage, helped us control vine vigour resulting in balanced canopies. From veraison through to harvest, the weather was very warm and dry, yet cool nights resulted in exceptional acid retention to balance fruit flavour development. Sauvignon Blanc was harvested between in late February, during the coolest part of the day and delivered to the winery immediately to preserve flavour.
