2014 Harvest at Murrieta

2014 Harvest at Murrieta

In general the growing season was irregular – a dry winter, no snow and low temperatures, with frost setting in November and December.

January and February, however, were noted for their mild temperatures and this continued through April and May. Summer was a mixed bag, no long periods of excessive heat meant that heatstroke was much lower than in other years.

In the first half of September temperatures were very high, both during the day and at night. Thermometers registered over 30º C across 12 consecutive days, with a maximum of 35.3º C on September 13th, they didn’t drop under 14º C. This excessive heat delayed the harvest, which started on 30th September.

The wines are balanced, very aromatic and are undergoing malolactic fermentation at the moment.
