2016 produced average yields and high quality fruit. Few frost spells in winter and little to no rain led to an early bud break at the end of February. A very good fruit set in spring was followed by a warm summer that kept the vines roaring through veraison and maturation. Harvest occurred from August 25th - October 13th, 2016.
