Adequate rainfall during winter and spring replenished soil moistures and kicked off the growing season really well. Cool to mild conditions during October and November followed by a warmish December were next to ideal. Timely rainfall in December freshened up the vineyards. A burst of heat in January and an extended period of heat in early March accelerated the vintage, though not negatively; in fact, excellent vintage conditions allowed above average yields without impacting quality or Main Ridge characteristics.
