Growing Conditions:

The lead up to 2016 was superb, beautiful cool and dry conditions through veraison providing excellent clean and healthy fruit and canopies. The wettest January since 1972 followed, testing winemakrs patience, with picking pushed back to see this period out. After this a dry February allowed the land to lose the moisture and grapes ripen and vintage to be back on track. Picking was 1-2 weeks behind average with lower than normal crops and a lot of hand picking to mitigate any risks of disease.

 

Vinification and Maturation:

Crushed into a combination of open top and static fermenters. Following a gentle 3 day pre-fermentation cold soak the wines were inoculated with cultured yeast. Colour & tannin were extracted from the skins by a combination of plunging and pumping-over for a period of up to 10 days. After pressing, the wines were transferred to a combination of stainless steel, to give freshness, and oak barrels, (10% new) to give richness & complexity, for a maturation period of 12 months. Once optimum maturation was obtained the parcels were blended and prepared for bottling.

 

Professional Review:

(2015 Vintage) 93 Points by James Halliday - Wine Companion 2018

"This isn't as good as the '14, but is much better than the Philips of 10 or 20 years ago. It is clearly varietal, and clearly Hunter. It's medium-bodied, with a quite fleshy mid-palate, earthy/savoury notes arriving on the finish along with the tannins. As honest as they come, and will surprise and delight those who cellar it for 10 years".
