Nevada/Washoe County NV - Harvest Notes PART TWO

Professor Grant Cramer at University of Nevada-Reno provides this updated information.

We dodged the frost bullet once again (35°F low) and the outlook for the week of October 9 is great weather!

Our Gewurztraminer was nearly perfect with a Brix/TA ratio of 3.4 (22.4 Brix and 6.6 TA).

The Pinot Noir grapes were quite ripe with a Brix/TA ratio of 4.4 (22.6 Brix and 5.1 TA).

We'll be harvesting Semillon and maybe Merlot of October 9.  Still have Pinot Gris and Chardonnay to harvest...maybe later this week.
