For the 2017 vintage, the spring warmed up with record heat in late May that initiated flowering. However, a cool down in early June slowed flowering through the second and third week of the month then was followed by a few days of record high temperatures. As a result, flowering was very complete and produced a very good fruit set. A warm early September accelerated fruit development but was slowed by a cool down mid-month. Feeling that the harvest was going to be fast and furious, growers breathed a sigh of relief with the cooler conditions and proceeded to have a slow and steady harvest.The 2017 vintage ended up with near average to slightly higher than average sugar and acid levels with many touting beautiful flavors and well balanced fruit.
