Malbec and Cabernet Franc Veraison

At this time of the year we´re harvesting Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, but also expecting for the Syrah, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, which are later varieties.

Reviewing the Malbec and Cabernet Franc vineyards today, they look specially colourful, as veraison has arrived.

The veraison occurs when the grapes turn colours and represents the transition from berry growth to berry ripening. It´s also a kind of marker, as it takes place 40-50 days previous the harvest.

As things are going, we´re expecting to begin picking from the middle of May.
