The Gordenker Vineyard is in full bloom and is probably the most prolific bloom I have seen in my 5 years of management. The great weather this last week has pushed things along nicely. We are still comfortably 2 weeks behind last year in development and there should be plenty of fruit This means lots of crop control to balance the vines and flavors in the fruit.
Thanks again Lisa! We doubled up, two great scores. Amazing news for us and happy to share these great wines with everyone!
Thanks Lisa Perrotti-Brown for the amazing score for our 2012 Gordenker Cabernet Sauvignon Sylvia Drive.
Gilham Erickson's project for Gordenker's entrance way is taking shape. Come join us on Saturday and see for yourself. Here is Tom's mum, Lynette (just arrived from New Zealand) taking a breather on the rock with ranch dog, Prim.
First signs of veraison in the vineyard, small clusters, little berries and changing color very late. Means that hopefully we will get more hangtime seeing as veraison is so late for more complex flavors.
Just a little preview of Brian's Workshop. Come join us on 2nd of August. More pictures are available at www.gordenker.com/events/ and RSVP here too.
We would love you to join us for a day to familiarize yourself with Gordenker wines and the Farm!
