Winemaker Notes:

2019 provided us with an unprecedented growing season. In early spring, moderate to cooler temperatures and fairly high levels of moisture in the ground delayed vine growth. On the surface, showers during bloom in May appeared to make for a challenging season. However, continual moderate temperatures from June through August allowed vines to balance their growth. By early August, as cluster size was fully developed and overall growth more harmonious, it was clear that 2019 would be a memorable vintage. The temperate season and natural retention of malic acid in berries provided ideal conditions for those of our white varietals that do not go through a secondary malolactic fermentation. As a result, the 2019 wines display extra freshness and multi-layered personalities.
