Vintage Races Ahead

3 November 2017

The 2018 Central Otago vintage is racing towards flowering. After 6 weeks, growing degree days ( a measure of sunshine and heat) are almost double the normal for this time of the year. Warm, dry, settled weather has meant that the vineyards are looking perfect - the only downside is that Blair and his team are racing to keep up with the growth. Shoot thinning, bud rubbing and wire clipping are the order of the day.
