2010 Harvest. What's that all about?
The "Merus" block has been saved from this predicament by Larry's quick action with the water valves. Sadly, Midorya Hills fell victim to the heat spikes this year. The good news is the damage to Midoriya seems to only be an issue with the quantity, not the quality of the fruit. For some unknown reason the fruit that was exposed to the sun just decided to die off. Hopefully what is left will have twice the flavor. We will see. The Berry Lane Chardonnay also shows the raisining effect with most of the fruit in good shape but some of the exposed berries turned scary black.
Our handy de-stemmer machine takes the grapes off the stems and leaves the raisins behind. So, other than the lack of fruit we should be in excellent position for an amazing year when it comes to quality.
