Since I last updated the vintage about two weeks ago we've enjoyed some very solid weather with temperatures regularily approaching the 30 C mark from Osoyoos to Summerland.
Overnights have been as low as 5 C and this big swing is prolonging the ripening process to the advantage of the winemaker.
We're getting some great readings from our vineyard samples and we should be close to harvesting our whites very soon.
It's the kind of late summer we've been hoping for: dry, warm and consistent.
We're starting with a small block of Chard on Sunday followed by 17 tons on Monday and Tuesday of the same.
