Vintage 2014 Update

Weather has continued to be favourable for a good vintage.
Plenty of sunshine and warm weather indispersed with the occasional wet day in December but a bit of a soil moisture top up doesn't go astray.
No sign of fungus to date.
The Tempranillo has started to change colour ie. veraison.

No sign of the ripening phase yet in the Pinot Noir.
The berries on the Semillon are still green and hard and of course the Cabernet has still a long way to go.We shall be putting on a protective spray of copper and sulphur very early in the new year.
