Overview

Early summer was a period of consistently dry weather, long warm days and cool nights. With good healthy vines and strong summer growth, crop loads were managed by shoot and fruit thinning. In March we saw a quick cool southerly blast with some rain pass through which slowed down the ripening, a lot of work was done to reduce the leaf shading of the fruit. The weather cleared to the warm days and cool nights that Marlborough is well known for, this caused a longer growing season - ideal for the Sauvignon Blanc and aromatics. The fruit was picked on its flavour balance with slightly lower sugar levels, strong intense flavours and good crisp acidity
