Vintage 2015

Despite some fairly good canopy growth, the harvest was quite light in 2015r and only marginally ahead of 2014. The season came in very early and very compact with pretty much everything ready at the same time. Good rains in early January and high leaf to berry ratios ensured a very even ripening and overall excellent fruit quality. The rest of the summer and fall continued to be very dry which was perfect for ripening.
Early in the season we applied organic compost to half of the vineyard and that did help the vines cope with the dry summer very well.
In 2015, the Grenache block did really well 6 years after planting and that reflected well in the crop.
