The 2017 vintage was in mid April, being a very late time of year to harvest our white grapes. The growing season experienced average to mild winter rainfall and temperatures. The summer was very mild with many cloud covered days and drizzly rain. This made the ripening process very slow. Birds were their usual hungry selves, however being such a late season the bush was full of blossom and the bird had plenty of food so didn't bother our grapes. There was no need to net the white grapes, so this saved us much work! The fruit was clean, ripe and well balanced. Harvesting was a challenging time once again, with constant drizzle and cool temperatures. We successfully harvested the last of the white grapes before the heavy rain started. The vines cropped and average of 4.0 tonne per hectare of fruit.

Wanting to produce a fruity style, this wine was created through a balanced blend of Semillon & Sauvignon Blanc. The fruit was de-stemmed, basket pressed then fermented slowly at 15 ºC in stainless steel tanks for 3 weeks. The wine was blended prior to bottling and stelvin closures were used to preserve the vibrant fresh flavours.
