Shooting began in the vines in early September 2015 at both Cambridge and Campania vineyard sites for Frogmore Creek. A very mild Spring with moderate temperatures and little rain saw flowering begin by mid November and conclude two weeks later. It became evident at this time that we would be heading into an early harvest. The summer months followed with hot, sunny days and very little rainfall. In late January the Coal River Valley welcomed 43mm of rain; perfect timing to support ripening and quality.
Vintage commenced on the 22nd of February 2016 and completed on the 20th of April. The superb Summer Frogmore experienced has been extremely beneficial to the wines produced as a result; each is well balanced and the red varietals particularly show intense colour and flavours.
