Vineyard Notes

Steady rainfall during the spring encouraged moderate vine growth beginning mid-April. A dry period in July was followed by heavy rainfall at the beginning of August. These conditions yielded a smaller crop that was harvested in early September. Small bunches, rich in aromatic compounds with very little juice produced fresh and expressive wines with beautiful, balanced acidities and perfect sugar content. A fine vintage that compares favorably to 2017 and 2010.
