Harvest Notes

The warm days and cool nights allowed for great evolution of flavour without any spikes in sugars while maintaining bracing acidity in the fruit; 2018 will be a vintage characterized by freshness, elegance, and balance in wines that will certainly stand the test of time.  

Winemaking

Our estate block of Gewurztraminer was separated into two micro-blocks as over the course of many years we have found that the two sections progress through the growing season with slightly different rhythms. The first pick came in on September 12th and the second pick came in on September 19th. Both lots were destemmed and left on skins for a few hours of cold soaking before being pressed to stainless steel tank for long, cool fermentations. After the fermentations were complete, the cellar team tasted through several blends before assembling the final 2018 Gewurztraminer.
