2015 Vintage Notes: 2015 started off with a major chill across the Finger Lakes, shattering the record for the coldest February in central NY. Fortunately for us, Sawmill Creek Vineyards saw only minimal damage even in tender varieties like Pinot Noir and Syrah. Following a cool spring, May through July were humid and featured many torrential downpours. Mercifully the weather dried out in September and provided above average temperatures which allowed the grapes to ripen and maintain excellent integrity. October also saw below average rainfall thus allowing late ripening varieties such as cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc the opportunity to mature unencumbered by disease pressure. Bottom line: after a dubious start, the 2015 harvest was among the most cooperative in recent years.
