“This vintage saw the opportunity to make an even more versatile style with a greater level of complexity from the inclusion of Mourvedre and Touriga Nacional. A more serious and thought-provoking release.” - Steve Pannell
Machine harvested. Co-fermented, blended as juice, and very lightly pressed with no extended skin contact- a true Vin Gris!
Simply stated, 2018 was a solid year. A vintage without extremes that was kind to both winemakers and vines alike. The fruit had lovely freshness and vivacity, the crops were of an average size and there was consistency throughout despite the dryness of the soil. Even the winemakers seemed to be enjoying themselves!
