Point Concepción Wines
Wine is made in the vineyard. At the moment that the grapes are harvested the flavor compounds, aromatics and precursors that become the finished wine have already been created. Minimal intervention allows the natural attributes of the varietal and vintage to reveal themselves in the wines each vintage, rather than a particular required style that prevails from vintage to vintage. Some would argue that the winemaker’s style should be imposed in order to create uniform wines. This is like only being allowed to look at a single style of art.
Every single year the weather and growing conditions are completely different. These parental influences can produce wines that are tannic and earthy one year, while the next they can be fruity and aromatic. Part of the pleasure of enjoying wine is the taste of each unique vintage and the flavor profile, which prevails each particular growing season.
