When The Cat’s Away …

Just returned from a week away to find a little sign of Powdery Mildew on some of the leaves. Fruit set is complete and verasion has begun on the Pinot Noir already.

Our plan of action is to spray with Liquid-Cop fungicide (not sulphur) to keep the leaves from getting worse if we can. At this point we can only hope the grapes won’t be adversely affected.

As for the fruit this year. Everything looks healthy but behind schedule from last year. The Chardonnay berries are still smaller and lack any sweetness.

The Pinot is 1/3 of the way into verasion and some of the red berries taste like 12º brix although we haven’t taken a refractometer to it yet.
