After three months of pruning our 33 acre Lyre Trellis vineyard (by hand), the team have now finished one of the most important jobs that we do. We’re always happy to finish pruning and not for the obvious reason of just reaching the end, as in reality it is only the beginning. We can now turn our attention to the upcoming growth phase of the season, and hopefully build upon the outstanding platform that has now been created for Vintage 2013. We are of course a long way from bringing the fruits of our labour, as that result lies in equal parts of skill & luck, luck of course being the weather. With talk of an El Nino returning this summer we can possibly expect drier and warmer weather than we’ve had over the last couple of years. Only time will tell so we’ll keep you posted as the season unfolds.
