Defiant nets! - 20 Mar 15

    Domain Road Vineyard - Defiant nets! - <p></p>

Defiance under nets for the first time.  The nets going out are a significant milestone in the year - it means that the fruit is ripening and the sugar levels increasing.  As the colours deepen the numbers of birds that are interested also goes up markedly.  I reckon a blackbird can spot a ripe Pinot Noir berry from 1000m (probably a slight exaggeration!).  Visitors to the tasting room ask why do we net - and the simple answer is if we didn't we would have very little fruit to harvest, and what we did have would probably be damaged.
