After several years of drought and reduced crops, our Gewürztraminer vines bore a full canopy and yielded a bountiful harvest in 2023. Spring and summer were cool in Anderson Valley and since we anticipated a late harvest in contrast to the prior three years, we decided to leave the top eight rows of East Hill for a potential late harvest wine. High humidity and cool temperatures are weather conditions that encourage botrytis—the noble rot—to develop and spread; fortunately, it rained on September 25 with daily drizzle into October and the weather remained cool until we harvested on October 20. Gold Medal winner. Best of Show.
