In 2020, vineyards experienced early bud break followed by rain during bloom. The growing season progressed nicely, allowing the fruit to develop complex and nuanced flavors. In August and September, the appellation was challenged by immense heat. However, the viticulture team anticipated the temperature spikes and harvested Chardonnay before the most significant heat events. Vineyard fruit yields leaned lower than typical years, with Estate Vineyards down by 10% (20 tons).
