Vintage Report

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Growing season: October 2015 – April 2016

Harvest: 29th March – 28th April 2016

Vintage 2016 will be remembered as one when Mother Nature tested our patience waiting for phenolics, flavours and sugar levels to reach optimal ripeness, with some of the latest harvest dates recorded recently, but in perfect dry autumnal conditions thanks to the El Niño weather pattern.

Minimal rainfall and very cool temperatures in the spring months resulted in a slow start to the growing season with a slightly later budburst than normal (early October.) Despite warm, wet January conditions and record breaking warm February temperatures, the cool start delayed ripeness until late March. The dry conditions Marlborough was gifted for the entire month of April meant our patience was rewarded with concentrated, balanced, naturally ripened Sauvignon Blanc fruit.
