Big Easy Red Blend 2017
The 2017 Big Easy Red Blend is arguably the most serious and riveting vintage yet.
The dry vintage was conducive to producing a superbly-concentrated, beguiling wine that dazzles the senses.
The 2017 Vintage: The previous growing season had its challenges, which seemed to roll over into the 2016/2017 growing season with the continuation of the drought. Winter 2016 was quite dry with even less rain than the previous year and spring was an illusion as we seemingly went straight into summer. The dry conditions did, however, lead to the grapes being healthy overall. With moderate, but warm days during December and January, we saw the start of harvest return to its normal date.
The uninterrupted warmth enabled the grapes to reach optimal ripeness.
