Winemaker Notes
The year started with a dry winter leading into a hotter than normal summer. Veraison was slower than usual which delayed fruit thinning, but encouraged extensive leaf pulling. We managed our yields to three tons to the acre. The cooler summer nights kept acidity levels up and the fruit balanced. With smaller berry size and lighter clusters we achieved great color and concentration.
