Generally below average temperatures this week but with two hot days. The rain started with 15mm on Tue. then very small gaugings for the remainder of the week.

This week in the vineyard:
We only picked the last of our Cabernet this week (for Peter Lehmann wines), but we will be finishing our 2007 harvest this coming week. The rain we had is a fantastic break to the season for us (assuming we now get follow up rain). It will not affect the Grenache we still have hanging as this is due to be picked this coming week.
