10% Greentip EL 5
This McLaren Vale Shiraz vineyard has reached 10% Greentip (EL Growth stage 5) but has not progressed in the last two weeks. The cold and wet weather, with saturated soil has delayed development.
We estimate it is 21 days less advanced than the same time last season. If this pattern continues this vineyard will be harvested around the 10th of March, 2011 - three weeks later than Vintage 2010.
