After a relatively mild winter, a cool spring held back bud break and potential frost damage until May. These two factors combined to set the stage for a fruitful vintage. The growing degree days (GDDs) were close to average through June and July but dipped in August. Rainfall was above average through the growing season which increased disease pressure and crop load. However, because September and October were warmer and drier than average, the grapes had more time to mature and develop flavor. 2017 pulled off the seldom seen scenario of high-quality wine in a high yielding vintage.
