In the Vineyard...
Harvest was over as of October 8th. The Rauser Carignane vineyard was the last to get harvested. Although the 2015 harvest had its challenges with early ripening of the grapes, and as usual not enough space at the winery in the beginning, it eventually smoothed out and we finished crushing a week earlier than last year.
Overall, it was very good. The wines we have tasted so far are coming along great and I am sure 2015 will go down as a delectable vintage.
Klinker Brick's vineyard manager, Les Dunning did a great job with the vineyards and getting the fruit to the winery. We owe him a great deal of thanks for all his efforts. As we all know, "it all starts in the vineyard."
It is time to call it a year with it all starting over again around the end of December.
