Vintage 2017 was very challenging in Hawkes Bay. Unseasonal rain events meant that we had to be very proactive in the vineyard to ensure we were harvesting at the right time. Our 2017 Limeworks is a surprisingly complicated assemblage. It is mostly based on a single machine harvest but also contains fruit from three separate hand harvests. The machine harvested fruit went to new and seasoned American oak and the hand harvests went to new and seasoned French oak. All components went through MLF and then stayed in barrel for around 11 months.
