Wine Profile
Harvest Notes
The 2014 harvest season was marked by severe drought throughout California, with only some rain in spring that helped saved the year. This is also considered to the earliest harvest season in over a decade, as well as a very condensed one, with sparkling wine production beginning in July and still wine finishing by mid-October. Even with all the obstacles handed to us by Mother Nature, the quality of the wines is as high as the last two vintages for many varietals. Small berries played a big role as they brought more density and intensity of flavors to the finished wines.
Vineyard Notes
Riesling is a white grape believed to have originated in the Rhine region of Germany. Our Riesling comes from McFadden Farm and is located in the cool grape-growing region of Potter Valley at the northeast end of Inland Mendocino County. This Riesling vineyard block has a rich history and in certified organic and the oldest Riesling vineyard block in Mendocino County.
