Just a quick update into the 2014 Harvest here at Meteor Vineyard.
We will begin to harvest our 337 clone this Wednesday, quickly followed by our clone 7 on Friday. Winemaker, Dawnine Dyer, is still keeping a close look at clone 4, which has slowed down considerably but, continues to have the best looking vines on the property. This will bring our harvest just over a week ahead of last years when we picked on September 26th.
Last Analysis brings in the following brix numbers:
Dyer says at this point "the fruit is firm and really picture perfect." The Meteor Vineyard team is excited for a great 2014 vintage in the making.
"The contrast between the mahogany color of the mature canes and the blue/black is the berries is classic Meteor!"- Dyer
Check in next week for a full update on our Harvest! We look forward to sharing the journey and the wines with you.
