Are the grapes ready yet?

Added Wednesday, 27/2/2013

The 2013 vintage is almost upon us so Brian is closely monitoring the fruit. Each week and for each variety he



  • takes a representative sample from the vineyard,

  • measures the sugar content of the juice

  • measures the grape acidity

  • assesses the flavours in the grapes

The first variety that we will pick is sauvignon blanc, Based on today's assessment, it should be ready to pick in about a week's time.
