Weather Conditions: Spring and early summer were hot and extremely dry. Much needed rain came in December and January promoting a vibrant and
healthy canopy.

After a warm summer we received more rain just a few days before harvest. Luckily the fine weather returned – and with the help of our amazing picking team we managed to bring our crop in safely and in good condition.


Viticulture
• 100% estate-grown fruit
• Moutere clay soil with a layer of sandy loam
• Clone Sauvignon Blanc MS

• Hand-harvested and hand-sorted on 29 March 2016
