Hunter Valley Wine Tours - The Brasilian Wine Connection


Today I hosted wine enthusiasts from Sao Paulo in Brasil on a Hunter Valley Wine Tasting Tour during the last days of the 2013 harvest.

 



Jeane & Jose checking out bunches of ripening Cabernet Sauvignon grapes on vines planted by Dr. Max Lake in 1963.

 



Cabernet Sauvignon is usually the last grape variety to ripen & be harvested. These bunches of tiny 10 mm diameter berries are nearing the perfect balance between sugar & acid & flavour in the skins, so they will be picked within the next week.
