Winemaking Notes: The 2023 growing season kicked off with a late bud break, reminiscent of 2011. Following bud break, a sudden shift to warm, dry weather marked the season, with only one June rain event. Ideal summer weather prevailed until a brief hot spell in August. Harvest commenced in late August, progressing smoothly until rains in September, which delayed picking but alleviated drought stress. Overall, fruit quality remained excellent, with balanced acidity and moderate sugars. While rain disrupted harvest timing, some fruit still met the 100-day bloom-to-harvest rule, suggesting no significant quality differences pre- and post-rain. 2023 wines will have beautiful concentration, exceptional freshness, and flavors.

Tasting Notes: A light and fun Alsatian field blend with flavorful notes of peach, lychee, pear, lemon, and a playful peach candy finish.
