I think this varietal is sauvignon rose, also called sauvignon gris. The mature grapes are pink in color.
The weather remains dry. I think that's a good thing for the growers, allowing them to time the harvest for when the grapes are at their peak rather than having to hurry to get them in before they rot. The season started off very wet, but the summer was dry and hot. It will be interesting to taste the 2016 vintage next year.
