2017 was another remarkable vintage in the Hunter Valley, one we believe that will be recalled fondly in years ahead. A vintage typified by warm, dry conditions, most white varieties were harvested by January prior to some record heat days in February. With the white varieties safely tucked away in the winery, the reds were harvested according to taste without any fear of rain or disease. A classic Hunter Valley vintage.
