Sierra Foothills/Calaveras County Harvest Report: Frog's Tooth (Murphys)

Gary Grant, winemaker at Frog's Tooth Vineyards, Murphys, Calaveras County/Sierra Foothills makes these observations:

"2012 is shaping up to be one of our best years yet at Frog's Tooth Vineyards.

Sauvignon Blanc just before 2012 harvest,
Calaveras County/Murphys
Our crop is looking very good. We have already harvested our sauvignon blanc; we may have been the first in the foothills. Brix was 23, pH was 3.4, TA was 6.5.

We next thinned the fruit from our  Grenache and Petite Sirah vines.

We harvested our viognier last Thursday, and got 7 tons ... our best harvest yet!"

NB:  Frog's Tooth has just gone through a website re-design.   I like the motto that is foremost on their home page:  "If wine can have legs, then frogs can have teeth."
