Harvest  Report  2012Harvest Report 2012
Harvest 2012:
 
Why are wines so interesting?  There are many factors that come to bear on the final product:  weather, soil, vineyard management, and wine making style.  Every year the weather gives us a new set of challenges to work with.  2010 and 2011 presented us with very difficult marginal weather.  We are very proud of the wines produced in these vintage years that required every bit of what we have learned over the past thirty years, and allowed us to produce wines of exceptional balance and finesse.
 
In contrast, the 2012 growing season was dry and our fall weather gave us a nearly perfect harvest.  From a small crop we were rewarded with ripe healthy fruit.  The wines produced are big, very dark, with ripe tannins and modest acidity.  Wines very similar to those produced in 2008 in size and depth of flavor.

Harvest 2013:

This year will be known as a vintage of a near perfect growing season that ended with a typical Oregon harvest weather. The 2013 was the warmest year since 2009 which was interrupted with a cool and sometimes wet September.

At Broadley Vineyards harvest began September 19th, bringing  in grapes from Shea Vineyards near the town of Yamhill, Palmer Creek in the Eola Hills and our own vineyard in Monroe. We finished our vineyard, picking the Claudia's Choice, Marcile Lorraine, and Jessica sections on the 26th and 27th of September  before record rains struck the Northwest.

Thirty years of wine making experience came in handy when presented with such an unusual harvest. As we are filling up our barrels, we are more than happy to report the 2013 wines are beautiful and dark, with well balanced long ripe flavors.
