2010 Vintage

2010 was the first year we felt the dramatic effects of poor pruning in 2008 (entirely our fault!) – the vines got infected with Eutypa and we had to cut out a lot of diseased arms. We replanted around 50 vines. The yield dropped to 1.2 tons. We picked with friends, changed our wine-making processes somewhat and bottled in April 2013

2010 Picking & Crush

We picked the 2010 crop in late October with a larger group of friends. We sorted the bunches superficially and dropped them into the destemmer which in turn dropped the berries directly into the fermentation tank.
