This year I had a small section of our Kerr Farm Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc block put aside to see how ripe we could get it. It got to about 29 brix. When we went to pick these plants we found masses of bees breaking the berry skins and feeding on the inside grape pulp, leaving us just the skins and not much fruit for winemaking.
A few days later talking to my neighbour he
tells me his bee hive was full of honey, much more than he expected for
this time of year. We came to the conclusion this was caused by the bees
pinching all our Sauvignon Blanc and filling up the
hive with honey. I managed to get a small quantity to sell at the
cellar door. Now I can't say I can taste a definite Sauvignon Blanc
flavour, but it is very tasty.
If you would like some come and try it this weekend and it is only $10 a tub. Only a few Tubs available
