The Vintage

As farmers, Mother Nature keeps us on our toes and the 2015 growing season was no exception. The vines awoke early because of warm spring weather. By the time the vines began to flower, we had some unusually cool weather which reduced the number of grapes per cluster. We could already see we were in for a lighter crop–fewer grapes on each cluster and the grapes would be smaller because of dry soils due to the ongoing drought. The weather stayed warm throughout the summer, keeping the vines running about three weeks early. The yields were lower than most years but the flavors were fantastic. It was our earliest harvest ever. As the wines develop in the cellar, the quality has been outstanding.

The Wine

Reminds you of a tropical island as notes of melon, pineapple and guava leap from the glass. Honeysuckle, gardenia and vanilla spice fill the palate before ending with a clean finish.

Food Affinities

Inspirational on a picnic or when paired with crispy spring rolls, orange peel chicken or seafood dishes.
