THE HARVEST

2018 was a challenge for the fruit driven white varietals. Weather patterns are definitely changing as this was a long, dry and warm summer. These unfavorable conditions were countered by good canopy management and early morning picking.

.

IN THE CELLAR

The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and made in a fresh style to maintain the natural flavours.
