Spring time in the cellar is exciting! All of the hard work from last year’s vintage continues to develop and mature in the tanks and barrels. The 2018 vintage appears world-class at this point. With the cool and wet vintage, a very delicate approach to winemaking had to be applied. With this in mind from the start of harvest, the vineyard team made the necessary adjustments in the field so the grapes could achieve phenolic ripeness. Precise and exhaustive field sorting pre-machine harvest was key to our quality and vital in creating an opportunity for premium winemaking. The wines are now going through heat / cold stability measures as we prep for our springtime bottling. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting 2018 vintage.
