Production Notes
2014 was a vintage of both high quality and quantity of fruit. An early bud break in the last week of February and a warm, dry spring led to a slightly earlier bloom and fruit set. Despite the lack of rainfall, the timing of the growth of the vines was perfect. Few incidents of frost and a warmer than average summer allowed the grapes to ripen at an optimal pace. The fruit was harvested in cool temperatures and at full maturity, from October 3rd-14th, 2014.
