2019 Yields and quality looking good despite the rain

 In Climate Change, Vineyard establishment

Despite a mixed season many, although not all, producers are reporting higher than average yields and good quality fruit.

Yet again Met Office data shows a warmer and drier season in East Anglia than other regions, although South-East & South-Central England, where most vineyards are located was only very slightly cooler (0.06oC). Here, growing season temperatures (14.03oC) were just above the 30-year average.

There was some early season frost but the season’s weather will be remembered primarily for the exceptionally wet harvest period – 66% more rainfall than the October 10-year average in South-East & South-Central England. Although still not quite as bad as 2013!

….so here’s looking forward to the 2019 vintage release.
