2012 Renwood Amador Ice, Ice Wine, Amador County 375 mL
Manufacturer: Renwood Winery
The vintage of 2012 had more of a normal weather pattern. Unlike 2010 and 2011, the harvest proceeded without any significant rainfall. There had been fears of another short harvest due to cool weather in the critical months of April and May 2011 when bud development for the next year occurs. We need not have worried as a large crop was forthcoming. Many growers had 20 to 30% more fruit than their averages and much higher than in 2010 and 2011. Still there was plenty of heat to ripen this crop and a long enough season to get everything picked and through fermentation.
