So you'll notice the choice of words "cold" to describe the weather. Its been cold with May vomming in at about 11c average for the month and everything is delayed. An average May temperature is about 12.7c.
Bud break was about May 23-26 and this puts it at the latest weve ever experienced, normal is around May 18-21.
With danger of any late frost having passed weve now completed the secondary pruning and we just need some heat now.
We are also moving from treated wooden posts to metal and weve now switched over 25% of the vineyard.
