And there you have it - Orange Muscat budbreak, 2017. Ever so slightly behind last year (not surprising seeing as Vinoland had just experienced 8 days of frosty mornings), the Orange Muscat vines are waking up from their long winter nap. As expected, it is the apical buds that are the most enthused. Go little buddies, but stay warm.
Meanwhile, I am frantically pruning the Syrah vines. With rain forecast for the next two days, it means I will be pruning the vines with my waterproofs on. Prune hardy!
