April (and May) showers bring June grapes.

They are flower clusters no more: there are now actual grape clusters amongst the canopy.
Fruit set looks great, especially in the Syrah vines. The Orange muscat fruit set though is an altogether different matter. It appears that there is a significant amount of shatter in the Orange muscat, which unfortunately means fewer berries at harvest time.

A good glass of home grown Syrah will go a long way to making me feel a whole lot better.
