The 2016/17 growing season was characterised by moderate rainfall
in winter with mild/warm conditions followed by a dry and warm
spring. Vine growth was rapid throughout the season and most
phenological markers were reached ahead of expectations due to
warm temperatures and a dry soil profile. Summer was typically
warm/hot with consistently cool night-time temperatures and a
major rainfall event mid-January around veraison.

cool conditions to preserve the aromatic intensity and to add further
structure, dimension, and complexity to the finished product
Pale straw with green hues and brilliant clarity.
