Vineyard Notes
The winter prior to the 2023 season saw several cold events where temperatures dipped below critical bud health values. There were many predictions of primary and possible secondary bud death. Bud break started on April 28th but was uneven and many primary buds were, as predicted, dead. Spring was cool but by late April the weather was warming up. May was nice and warm as was the remainder of the summer. The volume of fruit was down significantly in our vineyards which resulted in a slightly early harvest date. The Gewurztraminer was picked on September 5th in our River Rock Vineyard. Our predicted tonnage was about half of normal and we were able to purchase some nicely grown, aromatic Gewurztraminer from OPG Vineyard in Kaleden, which was picked on September 4th. The vines were farmed sustainably with particular care and attention to canopy and water management. Harvest decisions were based on winemaker’s personal preference with particular attention to sugar/acid balance and flavour.
Winemaker Notes
The Gewurztraminer was hand-picked, at peak ripeness, destemmed and pressed after a short period of skin contact time. The juice then allowed to settle and racked to another stainless steel tank where it is inoculated with select yeast starting the temperature controlled fermentation. The wine spent several months on the finer lees before finning, blending, filtering and bottling.
