Even when we evaluate the vintage first when the wine is in the cellar (or some colleagues do so when the wine is out of the cellar), on Mikuláš Duda´s blog you can read the answers from our vine grower Roman Slouk, how the vintage 2015 looks like from the vine growing perspective:
"Sucho, vedro a špačkové." (Dry, hot and starlings; CZ only)
Given the fact, there was some rain since the article got published, here we have an exclusive update from Roman, including the pictures of his new weapon against the starlings.
"Since writing the comment, the situation in Moravian vineyards could be described as Wet, hot and starlings. The optimist has won, again, it rained beautifully around 100 mm water, yet, the optimist would had wished half. The vine got into optimum condition for its autumn development. Some grapes might not have born the big amounts of water and bursted, becoming a refuge for mould and a potencial source of infection of the entire grape. But this would happen by rainy weather, which being an optimist, I do not expect. Long live the indian summer! On the attached pictures you can see our new eagle, which will help us scaring off the starlings."
