“In contrast to the warm and compact growing season of 2016, Vintage 2017 saw a return to more traditional con-ditions. A cool and wet spring delayed budburst and flowering and consequently we had a later start to harvest in early March. Some truly ideal weather followed with about three to four weeks of blue skies and temperatures in the high 20’s with no heat spikes. The even temperatures, cool nights and long ripening period provided us with some excellent fruit across all varieties.” Rob Dolan – Winemaker.
