Winemaker Notes:

 “Because 2015 was so early due to the drought and heat, most whites ended up ripening in colder months which helped protect the fragrance and acidity of what be-came very balanced wines. Because the acidity levels were much higher than expected, the whites have amazing backbones and very well developed aromatics. We also had fewer heat spells than in previous warm vintages. Therefore, the plants did not shut down, and we did not burn certain aromas or malic acid. The early harvest truly saved us by allowing the grapes not burn certain aromas or malic acid. The early harvest truly saved us by allowing the grapes to ripen when they were more protected in earlier, colder months."

- Jean Hoefliger
