Shoot-Thinning Semillon

After a morning tea of Ginger Loaf and Venison Meatballs (not together) provided by Brett, we shoot-thinned the two staff rows of Semillon next to the winery and cellar door. After the wet winter and relatively warm growing season so far (touch wood), vine growth is vigourous with plenty of potential bunches. By the look of the caps flowering is imminent, and the next few weeks will tell us whether these potential bunches will set into fruit.
