2016 was Mollydooker’s biggest vintage to date, with a total 1,437 tonnes of grapes crushed and into barrel. Budburst was a week later than usual, but veraison and harvesting were generally right on cue, despite several heat spikes (up to 42°C) early in the season.

To handle the extra fruit Mollydooker decided to increase the fermentation capacity in the winery, meaning that a lot of work needed to be completed before the fruit arrived. Much thought and manpower went into creating four new temperature controlled 10 tonne fermenters, which were installed just one week before the fruit arrived!
