2014 started well and was near perfect. Winter and spring rains followed by encouraging July weather allowed the vines to focus on berry-set and growing bunches. Cooler autumn months along with further assistance by rigorous leaf plucking and bunch thinning helped promote distinct varietal flavours. When the Okanagan's warmest and driest growing season concluded, it was judged as challenging but ultimately rewarding.
