Because the 2018 growing season was one of naturally high yields, we worked meticulously to thin the fruit and to bring each vine into ideal balance. The clusters ripened slowly, and in general, 2018 was a late harvest. The Grapes for the 2018 Loch come from many of our vineyard sources that you know from our single vineyard offerings. Olivet Lane, Thale’s, Terra de Promissio, Nunes, and Hellenthal Vineyards are all represented in the 2018 bottling. All grapes were lovingly hand harvested between September 11th and September 26th, 2019.
