ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Notes From The Winemaker: A drier than normal winter in 2016 meant budburst happened 2 weeks earlier than usual. Normally this put us at slight risk to frost but some spring rainfall helped the frost stayed away and ensured healthy growth in the vines. While it was a dry growing season, maximum temperatures were still moderate and the harvest dates for all varieties ended up falling back to the their expected times, not earlier as experienced in other grape-growing regions. The Hilltops region is blessed with mostly drier and warmer days with some cooling relief at night due to its continental position. This wine had no skin contact, instead it was processed like a white grape which helps produce this pale coloured, fruity style of wine.
Fruit Source: 100 % Hilltops region
