Vintage Notes: One of the harshest Februarys on record with extreme cold and heavy snow fall. this was followed by a relatively mild spring and summer. A series of very hot and humid episodes during the latter part of veraison accelerated berry soening and ripening across all varieties.this provided the proper viticultural criteria for the development of high quality noble rot, and also shortened the ripening window for all varieties across the board. We experienced a condensed window of harvest that required intense picking and process schedules in order to bring in each of our varieties at optimal ripeness.
Tasting Notes: Baked apple tart on the nose with nutmeg, vanilla stick and stone fruit. Whiffs of toast and more baking spices follow. On the palate: mouth-filling poached pear, salted almonds, coconut meringue and hints of citrus combine, carrying the initial creamy mouthfeel into a fresh finish.
