Vineyard Notes

White wines from the 2014 vintage are rich in sugar and show ripe aromas and good acidity (low pH).

Winegrowing Notes

The 2014 vintage was notable for both high yields and excellent quality. Bud break was two weeks late because the soil didn't warm up early enough after a very wet, snowy winter. The grapes' maturity accelerated during the summer, wich was warm, never hot, and dry. The vines did not struggle and the foliage remained green. all season. September was dry, warm and sunny, so the growing season was long and allowed the fruit to develop well. There was just enough rain in October and no frost.

Winemaking Notes

The grapes were destemmed, fermented in stainless steel, cool fermented at 58-60F, and stabilized with sterile filtration and fined with Isinglass. pH: 3.17, RS <0.2%, total acidity: 6.03.
