    Vintage conditions

    Just as in the 2016 vintage, a voluminous crop set following ideal flowering conditions. However, during véraison strict discipline was required in removing late developing bunches, leaving a balanced and prospectively superb crop. Apart from the rejuvenating 2 inches of rain that fell a week prior to the first picking date, cool and dry conditions prevailed throughout harvest, allowing for a healthy and leisurely ripening.

    Vinification details

    Numerous vineyard parcels, picked at various stages of ripening, contribute to a sleek and complex wine. The implementation of overnight skin contact has become a key feature in extracting varietal personality. Fermented dry with extended post ferment yeast contact, enabling the expansion of the creamy texture.
