"The 2021 vintage was a gift from Mother Nature. The year commenced with little rain, leading to an early budbreak with the second year of drought conditions in Napa Valley. Mild spring temperatures allowed for an easy renewal to the growing season with temperatures rising in the summer months, accelerating the start of the harvest. The Sauvignon Blanc harvest on our Mt. Veeder Estate began quite early, starting on August 17th, rounding out the harvest of white wine varietals with the Semillon and Sauvignon Gris after only 13 days. Smaller canopies and berries meant smaller yields, resulting in concentrated grapes with tremendous flavor encapsulating the beauty of the vintage. While a small production size was dictated by the rhythms of the growing season, the quality level of the 2021 vintage is exceptional."
