Something in the air...
Frosts aside (and we have been fighting our share, and have sustained some losses), it's springtime and the world in the vineyards is full of new life and promise.
We have at Alex (Last Chance vineyard) 7 acres of pinot noir grapes, surrounded by 13 acres of wild thyme. And here it is in full flower. The air is strongly scented with thyme. We are sure this accounts for some of the wonderful savoury notes you can taste in our Pinot.
And as well as our sheep providing natural fertilizer, and our extensive composting programme, we also grow cover crops between our rows. These not only conserve water and soil, when dug in later provide heaps of excellent organic matter for the vineyard.
Ok ... lesson over. You can all go out and play now.
