Syrah pre veraison
This very green photo is of a fine looking bunch of Syrah grapes. The next stage is ‘veraison’, when the grapes turn red which should start in 2 to 3 weeks.
The whole vineyard is looking extremely green at the moment. The vines are much bushier than last year thanks to the plentiful rainfall we have had in the spring and also this week. It is also very noisy in the vineyard. The cicadas are in full voice and are very active, dive bombing as you walk along the rows.
