WINE OVERVIEW

Our 2018 Grüner Veltliner is richer than past vintages thanks to fermenting a third of the fruit for this wine in a concrete egg. Aromatics of key lime, fresh-cut grass, and white flowers give way to an elegant and well-balanced palate with minerality, limestone like feel. Notes of apricot and stone fruits are revealed mid-way through the palate, which ties the wine together with a thread of vibrancy that complements the weight. This wine has a delicate but dense harmony.

HARVEST OVERVIEW

The 2018 vintage was magic. Following the trend of the past several vintages, summer was warm, but nighttime temperatures remained cool, helping the fruit to hold its natural acidity. As harvest approached, temperatures cooled ever so slightly creating perfect fruit ripening conditions. With no big rainstorms on the horizon, we never had an urgency to pick. Once we started picking fruit, the vintage was slow and consistent with perfect flavors and lab numbers. The 2018 vintage will produce fantastic wines.
