|Peter Stewart has the fruit bowl in perfect balance, the biochemistry is in peak energy storage phase and we are weed/pest/fungus free.

The golden leaves are falling daily and bare canes will predominate within the next few weeks. Fascinatingly, many Mornington Peninsula vineyards have already been pruned. Our subtropical locale and the tempering effect of Lake Wyaralong put us about 8 weeks behind our southern cousins. The time in the next cycle, from budburst to vintage, is shorter, sharper and more intense here. Our DNA/RNA mediated protein and carbohydrate chemistry is of Rolls Royce quality boasting superlative results.
