As we write this today, we have just finished harvesting for the 2016 vintage. The 2016 harvest began with a very promising flowering and the vineyards had a healthy crop level. The early part of the summer was terrific and we were looking forward to an excellent harvest. Some rain and warm weather in late February dampened things a little and when harvest began in early March we had to be very selective about what we picked - similar to 2011 and 2012. Hand harvesting in a year like this is crucial and our crew have done a great job in sorting through the fruit to deliver clean, ripe grapes to the winery.

The single vineyards - Mate's Vineyard, Hunting Hill and Coddington really do show their class in a vintage like this and the resulting wines will be brilliant.
