About REX HILL
Ripe juicy fruits – red and black – with hints of baking spice and a full, rich palate.
In the heart of the Dundee Hills AVA, this vineyard is primarily comprised of red Jory soil, contributing to its elegant presentation and aromatic red fruit profile.
A cool, wet spring led to the latest budbreak we’ve seen for the past several years, and hence later flowering. This means a greater chance of favorable weather and the development of a large crop both in terms of berry quantity and size. This calls for discipline in fruit-thinning. The summer was warm and sunny, accumulating growing degree days and ‘catching up’ the projected harvest to about two weeks behind 2015 and 2016. Underlying the challenges of the 2017 vintage, was a very sound growing season and harvest.
