Second week of April

April 3rd-9th

A full 7 days of pump-overs and punch-downs. Nothing too exciting.

Sunday April 10th

It’s my one day off and I can’t seem to get out of bed. I’m actually quite content. But later in the afternoon I decided to try Greenstone again to see if they are open. And they are! I do a tasting and sit outside. The have a big gassy area and nice view of their vineyard. I tasted a 2011 sparkling, 2015 Sauvignon Blanc, 2014 Chardonnay, 2015 Pinot Noir, 2014 Sangiovese, 2013 Shiraz, 2012 Shiraz, and 2013 Sangiovese. All were really pleasant. The stand-out wine was their 2012 Shiraz. It had elegant oak characteristics with a good balance of fruit flavors. And it was aging nicely. I bought one of those and also a Sauv Blac to take home. The 2012 Shiraz might be one that I save and sneak in my luggage back to the States!

Also here are some more work pictures!
