We frost protect by sprinkling water which protects the vines and crop down to 26°F. We frost protected nineteen sleepless nights in the spring of 2008.
We've experienced three consecutive cold vintages but not one has been a replay of another. In 2007 the unique twist was that October had the most rainy days ever recorded in Mendocino County. Vintners get edgy about drizzle because it causes rot. The crew rushed to pick Navarro's Pinot Noir, Gewürztraminer and Chardonnay, varieties which ripen before Riesling. When we finally had time to focus on Riesling we realized that botrytis had spread like wildfire. Since noble rot enhances some of the world's most wonderful sweet wines and because Navarro's crew was maxed out, we had dawdled and let nature take its course. Great for making sweet wine but in 2007 we were only able to produce a third of our normal amount of dry Riesling. If we could hit a replay button we might have hustled and had a bit more of this delicious dry Riesling to sell. Bright acidity and restrained alcohol makes this wine refreshing, with lingering apple and apricot flavors. Gold Medal winner.
