When flower clusters and mini tendrils appear in the vineyard I think it is safe to say that budbreak has happened. The Orange muscat (OM) vines are looking very enthused, the baby shoots are almost 2 inches long already. I have been so busy pruning the Syrah vines that I almost forgot to have a look at how the OM was doing. They look like they're doing fine and dandy. Must remember to have a peep at the Pinot grigio tomorrow. Prune on.
