2015 was a solid vintage following brutally cold temperatures and snowfall in February which caused some damage and reduced overall yields. Variable temperatures in the spring and a damp June were fortunately tempered by a hot and dry July and August. These ideal growing conditions persevered through a warm and lengthy autumn during the final stages of maturation. The vintage shows whites of complexity and freshness while the reds, as a result of lower yields and extended ripening, are layered, elegant and plush.
Noticeably missing in this proprietary blend for 2015 is the highly aromatic Gewürztraminer, leaving Chardonnay (57%) to do the heavy lifting with Sauvignon Blanc (18%), Sémillon (15%) and Viognier (10%).
