Usually our 8 vineyards are picked across a six to eight week period, different varieties and aspects ripening at different times. With the very warm, early 2013 vintage however every berry, every block, every variety was picked in a week and a half. All ripe at once. All we could do was GO! The warm vintage has provided a classic dark fruit spectrum, but we picked early enough to keep the wines from being too broad. In fact, they are mineral and floral and tightly structured. Finer boned than we had thought. This year's wine is a blend of the warmer, Hyde Park Vineyard (58%), the cooler, 44 year old Westgate Vineyard (27%) and the balance from the fleshy Rice's Vineyard (15%). As always, wild yeast fermented.
