Viticultural Notes: The grapes for this wine were hand-picked with viticultural practices based around maintaining balance in the vineyards, sustainability and responsiveness to changing environmental conditions.
2020 is characterised as a long and cool season. Winter rains continued into spring giving full verdant vine canopies to set up the growing season. Flowering conditions were less than ideal leading to reduced fruit yields. The season progressed with very mild conditions frequently without prolonged sunlight. These mild conditions and cool nights extended the ripening period for grapes well into Autumn and allowed for the evolution of cool climate characters retaining vibrant natural acidity.
