It only seems like yesterday that the vines were being pruned and laid bare across the valley.
Now, with the foliage established, a glimpse underneath reveals the beginning of what its all about, the fruit. The vineyard is in top condition and I can sit back for a moment or two and just let the vines get on with it. The emergence of new fruit is always exciting and as with all juveniles, with each day they reveal more and more possibilities.
With vintage still some months away I’ll turn my attention to the winery and preparation details to receive the fruit once harvested. But in the mean time, I’m enjoying walking through the vines and peering beneath the foliage at the fruit and wonder the outcome.
“Anticipation” the word of the moment.
