When they're brown, they're done...

A very misty, damp morning (that, once again, wasn't really forecast) did not deter me from taking a sample of Pinot grigio grapes for a quick refractometer measurement.
I'm thinking that the slightly high reading of 25.2 °Brix  is perhaps due to the 106/108 °F temperatures last weekend that could have resulted in a little bit of dehydration.  The grapes are not raisined, the fruit looks absolutely beautiful this year, so I am not too concerned with the elevated sugar level. Besides, some of the seeds are a lot greener than those in the photograph.  And the juice is tasting fabulous. We are very close.  I'd better start thinking logistics.

Thud: Please!

VG: If I do a fingerprint analysis of these nicely manicured fingers who will I discover? Just a thought on the digital age we live in. Cool photo though!

NHW: First time anyone has ever described Vinomaker's nails as being manicured.
NASA could probably digitally enhance my reflection in the pulp :)
