Que Sera del Syrah?

The busy bees below were picking and crushing our estate Syrah for the better part of today. I saw my brother Alan out there in his vineyard hat, driving the tractor and forklift carrying a few half-ton bins of Syrah into the crushpad area for processing.

The Syrah fruit fit snugly in one of our square burgundian concrete fermentation tanks.

Alan's next plan of attack: Cabernet Franc (pictured right).

Note his trusty chocolate lab Emma by his side. This morning she was barking and barking, hanging around Alan when he was driving the farming equipment. She also has a bad habit of running around the tractor as she yaps away...

To be continued!

All the best,
