LXV Harvest 2014?

The Ravings of a Passionate Viticulturist

An excerpt from vineyard insight by Don Hoffer, LXV's grower for Syrah on Arbor Road in Westside Paso)  

Extra info goes here

Growing Season Timing:  The dates of bud break (first opening of buds into leaves) and flowering are good indications of whether the growing season is early, normal or late.  Syrah and Grenache plants were at 50% flowering  two weeks ago  5/07/14. This is approximately 3 weeks earlier than normal for the past 5 years.  Right now, these same Syrah and Grenache vines have reached fruit set which is when the grape flower has been pollinated and now forms a tiny berry.  An indication of the degree of fruit set is what percentage of the flowers have turned into berries.
