2012 was a bountiful harvest for Emeritus Vineyards. The growing season temperatures were moderate and the vines responded with a tremendous fruit set with good soil moisture. Because of the large crop and dry farming the berries remained small. Excess clusters were thinned in a series of passes to achieve balance of fruit to canopy. The ripening of the fruit was flawless. Dry farming appears to even out the maturation curve of the grapes without the dips and spikes that were seen with irrigated vineyards in the past. The vines develop the grapes to ripen with lower sugar and retain acids even in a warm vintage, like 2012.
