Notes on the 2017 Vintage: In stark contrast to recent vintages, the 2017 Harvest provided optimal conditions for us to craft wines that emphasis their natural acidity and vibrant texture. A long, slow ripening period characterised by cool weather, without many incidents of rain. For our style of winemaking, this vintage was ideal and we’re super excited to release these wines!
