2017 was our third consecutive outstanding vintage and made 2017, 2016 and 2015 the best run of seasons we’ve ever experienced. The wines are beautiful expressions of variety, season and site.
The 2017 vintage was a full month later than the previous two. It was almost European in character with much higher rainfall during the growing season. Whether the ability of each of our sites to produce such outstanding and consistent quality wine is due to our focus on the geology when choosing the land to plant, the relatively rare mix of vine clones planted, or the organic principles applied, we may never know. We can say that the combination of these has had a profound impact. This is especially true for our three rieslings; each being from a unique vineyard site.
The resilience of our vines and their ability to consistently produce superior quality wine in a world where climatic conditions are changing is nothing short of a marvel.
