The 2016 will be released mid-July
The 2016 growing season was characterised by an even and mild spring, that lead into a warm and persistent summer. There were plenty of fine and warm days and thankfully, no extreme heat waves. In fact it was as normal as one might expect these days.
We began picking in later February with the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and finished in early April with the Grenache. After the very strong 2015 vintage, it looks like another high quality vintage and we believe the wines are up there with some of our best . The 2016 wines are beautifully balanced at this early age, which is the hallmark of all top vintages. They will of course benefit greatly from extended cellaring.
