The 2015 growing season started with a sigh of relief from the second of two very cold winters. March carried the cooler temperatures which led to a later start to the season. April and May were of the seasonal norm, followed by a wet June and very dry July. August and September brought back favourable conditions allowing the vines to get back on a normal ripening schedule. October rains dictated picking times, but thankfully warm temperatures persisted throughout the fall, allowing later ripening varieties the time and temperatures they needed. Although yields were down, we harvested great quality across the board. A vintage showing classic cool-climate character.
On the nose there are hints of wildflower honey, lime and wet stone. Aromas are restrained in this wines youth. The palate is plush and juicy with tantalizing acidity that awakens the taste buds. A tightrope balance of acid and sugar. A ‘more please’ finish with years of development to follow.
