Vintage the 2015 vintage will be remembered for being hot light and early. Yet another year with a warm dry winter and an early budbreak. A fourth consecutive year of drought seems to be affecting the vines as were seeing fewer clusters on each shoot than is typical. To exacerbate this when the clusters were flowering we were hit with a cool may resulting in poor pollination and even less fruit on the vine. The light crop and hot summer and fall resulted in an earlier than normal harvest. Though early and scarce the quality of the 2015 wines is once again out of this world. Fermentation & aging our reserve chardonnay was fermented and aged in 66% stainless steel fermenters and 34% french oak burgundy barrels. These fermentations were kept cool – 52 to 55 °f – to preserve the fresh fruit aromatics. The use of stainless steel also helps to retain the fresh varietal character while the oak adds depth and complexity.
