What our team says
A wet, cool spring delayed flowering until late June, which set the stage for a later harvest than the previous three vintages. Hot, dry conditions prevailed through the summer, yielding heat spikes in August.
With a larger than normal fruit set, the grapes enjoyed long hang time leading up to harvest. Conditions cooled and brought in scattered rains with the harvest, which began at Brooks on the 28th of September and ran through November 1st, almost returning to normal average harvest dates in the Willamette Valley. The wines from the vintage show fresh fruit flavors and lively acidity.
Comprised of 50% riesling grapes from our very own Brooks Estate vineyard located in the Eola-Amity Hills and 50% riesling grapes from Yamhill vineyard located in Yamhill-Carlton.
In all, it will be remembered as a classic vintage in Oregon!
