Background

The 2016 growing season started out incredibly dry, with some predicting a severe drought. Fortunately some unseasonal rains in February set the vines up for a great final ripening period. March and April were very consistent, with warm and dry weather experienced throughout Marlborough allowing a harvest that wasn't dictated by the weather. All varieties were able to be picked at optimal ripeness and in good time. Conditions over the flowering period were stable creating nice even crop levels in the vineyards. Even though it was a dry growing season, it was a relatively cool one which resulted in us harvesting the Pinot Gris blocks two weeks later than previous years. This longer hang-time has translated into wines with great concentration and texture.
