This is the fifth release of this single vineyard wine after missing out on fruit from here from the low-yielding 2015 harvest. The Mount Base Vineyard is on a cracker site on the edge of the Waihopai River in the Waihopai Valley. Stony and barren in parts the vines get minimal water and nutrient, while the areas closer to the river are fertile and generous. Every part of this fabulous site gets maximum love, concentrating all those efforts on growing small intensely flavoured, sun-ripened fruit. V16 was fruitful and high yielding which was challenging viticulturally but the idyllic weather over April and a great site delivered a range of fruit profiles from which to blend.
