Vineyard Notes

Wet Spring with late bud break and bloom, quality of set was excellent and high yielding. Bird pressure - average and very little disease pressure. Verasion was not until September which per the wet spring followed into a late harvest. The fall remained warm which gave the fruit time to ripen with only a few days of rain. We picked later then usual waiting for the fruit to become balanced.
