The closing weeks of vintage has seen some unkind weather. ‘Global Cooling’ has prolonged the season, making the accrual of sugars almost negligible and we have had to rely upon ‘hang time’ which reduces the volume in the grapes. Now that has been a difficult call as well, because it has hardly stopped raining!
The Currawongs are throwing themselves against the sides of the nets, hoping to push them in far enough to get a mouthful of grape. Very frustrating for them, but tough! I will be able to stop my stress pills on Sunday night!
