Vineyard Update -- Cover Crops

Due to the dry winter, our vineyard team has mowed much of our organic cover crops so that our vines will get all the moisture they need without competition. The cover crops will be disked or tilled in to provide nitrogen and improve soil structure. Here's a before and after shot to see the difference.

2011 ATS Chardonnay

 

2011 ATS Chardonnay

Our 2011 ATS Chardonnay boasts the taut, sinewy structure of Chardonnay from our Old Wente blocks, blended with a soupçon of the floral dominated Dijon 809 clone. The Inviting aromas of nutmeg, almond and Brioche with shimmering honeysuckle and apricot tones invite you in, but it’s the supple, rich mouth feel of the wine that hooks you. A full-bodied, richly textured wine the ATS Chardonnay blends stone fruit freshness with crisp acidity, creating a long-lived impression that will keep you coming back for more.

 

 

2011 Cuvaison Estate Pinot Noir

Another cool vintage coupled with a late season engendered this seductive, elegantly-styled Pinot Noir. Raspberry, wild strawberry, pomegranate, and lilac notes, gently spiced with aniseed, sassafras, and a touch of juniper berry. On the palate the wine showcases structure over bombast -- bright acidity, clean fruit, and graceful tannins linger in the memory.
