wine bloom

Wine view June 2019

The big chase is in full swing

Nature balances many things again - winegrowers are noticing this at the moment when you can almost see how the shoots grow. Although the vineyards were still nearly two weeks behind the long-term development until the end of May, they are setting a rapid spurt in recent days, which is currently the number one issue in tacking. Add to that the yeasty wind of the last days, in which the shoots break off very easily because they grew so fast.

In the meantime, the grapes are beginning to bloom and we are back in the long-term average in mid-June. The flowering of the vines is relatively unspectacular, the flowers are very filigree and not visible when driving by. Anyone who has a fine nose will hear a slightly sweet smell in the district.

It is the last natural hurdle of earnings development of the vintage, apart from hail storms. The further income control with the aim of quality improvement is then in the hands of the winemakers and is practiced after flowering very targeted by reducing whole grapes or even dividing grapes.

At the time of flowering, the reading time can be predicted, the grapes need about 100 days from flowering to maturity, so that one can calculate with a reading start end of September and thus about 3 weeks later than in the past extremely early year.
