Another very hot week this week. The vines continue to be at verasion. The picture this week is the same bunch as last week showing how much colour change has occurred in only 1 week.

This week in the vineyard:

I took a couple of days off this week, a short break before we get into the madness of vintage. We had our first samples of grapes analysed this week Sauv. Blanc is at about 7.5 Baume and White Fronignac is at 7. One of our wineries is asking for all whites to be sampled next week. I am expecting that our first grapes will be coming off in 2 - 3 weeks.
