13.02.2012 - "Blue"
There isn't a lot of blue in the plant world, but the bloom on the Cabernet grapes in my Dad's vineyard have a hint of blue. I love the way that as soon as the bloom is disturbed, it disappears.
Over the past few years the vintage has been ruined by smoke from the bushfire or damaged by the weather. He is now at a stage of life where he doesn't want the stress involved, or the physical labour of caring for the vineyard. Unfortunately the market for grapes as dropped off in Australia, and my father is faced with the prospect of ripping out the vines. It is not an easy decision to make.
