2018 Pinot Blanc

Vintage

Due to cold temperatures at the beginning of the year, bud break was a bit later than usual in late April. However, with warmer than normal spring weather, bloom began early during the first week
of June, leading the Willamette Valley into the hottest summer on record. High grape yields allowed growers to drop fruit, assuring the best quality fruit for our harvest which lasted September 17 – October 18. It was a smoky summer due to multiple forest fires, but we were lucky to avoid any smoke taint.
