VINTAGE AND HARVEST
2015 was an excellent vintage with a dry, hot summer. Ripening occurred relatively early and resulted in high-quality grapes with a desirable acid to sugar ratio. Harvested by hand in several steps between the last week of September and middle of October, with yields of about 1.5-2 kg/vine. Grapes were de-stemmed, gently crushed, and gently pressed.
