Winemaking Notes: Wine is fermented and stored in 100% stainless steel tanks. The grapes are dropped straight into the press. The juice is pumped directly into stainless steel vessels where the wine ferments without any juice to skin contact.

Vintage Notes: Similar to 2015, harvest started early in 2016. The winter was mild. Spring arrived early and so did the growing season. The summer was hot but the temperature cooled for harvest. Ripening was gradual so the length of harvest lasted about 2 weeks longer than normal. Wonderful cooperation from Mother Nature allowed extended hang time under optimal conditions for full flavor development.
