It had to happen. We have had some frost damage. Sat. morning (21st), the temp. at Nurootpa dropped to 0C (32F), it appears to have gotten a bit colder here as some of our vineyards have been moderately frosted. We are hoping the damage is not too bad as the fruit zone does not appear to be badly affected, however we have lost most of our growing tips.
The temp trace shows Friday night going into Saturday morning. We do not think that the temperature spent very long below 0C. I will have more to report on the amount of damage we have suffered with my regular report on the weekend.
Temp trace thanks to Weatherzone and Nuri viticulture research centre.
