Vintage & Viticulture
Spring came in with a wet April and a drier May which allowed a slow consistent flowering. The summer was wet and had temperatures 2-3 degrees below normal. Once again the fall made the vintage, drier warm temperatures and cool nights allowed the fruit to develop further.
When the founders of Ashlar wines set about to find a symbol for it's finest vintages, the Ashlar was the obvious choice. Ashlar meaning 'cut stone' was a tool used to build some of the greatest edifices of the human era. In this respect Ashlar became the symbol for community, integrity and charity.
