Above average temperatures in January made this a challenging vintage for white variatals. Our proximity to the Atlantic did however ease this heat somewhat. Canopy management aimed at better leaf cover was also an aid.
IN THE CELLAR
The three varietals that make up the blend are each vinified separately as individual wines. Stain-less steel tank fermentation and reductive wine making are followed. These three components are then blended in different ratios until we are satisfied that we have the final blend that meets The Old Man’s approval.
