2016 Vintage Update


Vintage is well and truly underway here at Scotchmans Hill, and the winery is buzzing with action. The 2016 vintage got off to a prompt start this year - almost ten days shy of last year’s start date - making it the earliest vintage Chief Winemaker Robin Brockett has seen in his 28 years at Scotchmans. According to Robin, this is due to the consistently warm temperatures we have seen this summer. 

2016 is shaping up to be an exceptional vintage at Scotchmans, and the grapes are looking very healthy, balanced, and well protected by canopy. Once again it will be a year of brilliant Shiraz for us, and interestingly, one particular block of Shiraz was ready for harvest before the first Pinot Noir grapes of the season. 

This week saw the sparkling base complete, the Sauvignon Blanc picked, as well as a few blocks of Pinot Noir. The coming weeks will see the rest of the Pinot Noir and our Chardonnay and Shiraz grapes ready for harvest. At the speed ripeness is progressing, all grapes will be harvested by Easter and the team in the vineyard may get to enjoy an Easter break along with you!
