» Vintage Watch VIII
By Gregory Dal Piaz
It's still hot in the Duoro Valley with plenty of sunshine but it's probable that we've seen the last of the sustained heat waves in the area. This has been a fine growing season so far.

And in Israel we are still in the dog days of summer. Hot humid days and cool nights. Rain at this time of year is never a concern, though who knows what changes global warming has in store for us.
The harvest is well underway and the vintners I know are pleased. A week and a half ago I participated in a Merlot harvest in the Judean Hills near Jerusalem. 25 brix, pH ~3.3, gorgeous color, and wonderful flavors.

I will be sure to include Israel in next year's Vintage Watch. Thanks for sharing with us!
