2014 was, in winemaking parlance, and interesting vintage! Good flowering led to very good fruit set and even growth throughout the vineyard. The key to the season was to keep yields low as most vines set too much fruit. We targeted blocks to manage fruitfulness tightly through both removing canes and green harvesting. Summer was good, but was followed by a wetter than normal harvest which presented some challenges. Through selective harvesting we were able to pick some very good batches of fruit. The wine was fermented with a variety of neutral and aromatic yeasts. Separate components were aged on lees for 8 months prior to blending and bottling.
