Current Release Wines for Spring Mountain Vineyard

2017 Elivette

Retail Price: $160.00
Wine Club Price: $128.00

The Elivette 2017 is flamboyant with bold fruit content. You will experience concentrated layers of texture in your mouth. The flavor profile is lingering and tenuous. The wine is vivid and playful, with the approachability of fruit tones. There is a balance of young fruit and additional depth to the classical mountain style. You can enjoy it now but a few years of cellaring will reveal a magical vintage.


Other Details:

 

The 2017 vintage at Spring Mountain Vineyard is marked by structure and power. Heavy winter rains recharged the groundwater and gave the vines new reserves to produce a healthy, balanced crop. Flowering took slightly longer than a typical vintage as Spring temperatures were mild so there was a certain degree of shatter, which naturally balanced the crop load. As the growing season progressed, several heat events in September helped accelerate ripening, which lead to an earlier than usual harvest at the Estate, with the majority of the Bordeaux varieties picked by the end of September and early October. In general, the smaller crop of 2017 produced intensely concentrated, muscular wines with a beautiful structure that will allow them to age gracefully for years to come.
