Veraison - UPDATE 20/1/2009


The maturest red varieties are not at 80-90% veraison. We have observed that in vineyards with good, balanced canopies with good irrigation, veraison has moved quickly and evenly. Vines that are showing signs of water stress have been much slower in progressing through veraison. Some of these vineyards are still only at 10% verasions meaning only 10% of their fruit is coloured.
