2019 Vintage

The 2019 vintage commenced with bud break in late March, after a cold February and yearly precipitation 16% above average. Though the growing season started 10 days late, temperatures were slightly warmer than average from April on, helping the vines to catch up. A rain event in May gave the vines an extra drink, though also increasing mildew pressure. The warm temperatures helped to achieve wines with great phenolic, acid, and flavor balance. The 2019s have slightly riper, more forward personalities than the 2018s, while retaining great poise and elegance.

2018 Vintage

The vintage commenced with precipitation much below average, though reservoirs remained full through the season after a very wet 2017. January and February were warm, resulting in premature budbreak in select parcels, increasing worries of frost as nighttime temperatures dipped below freezing on February 23rd and 24th. Luckily, no harm was done, and the following months saw temperatures at, and often below, seasonal averages. 2018 was a classically cool growing season on the Central Coast- an epic year for SLS’s cool climate varietals.
