Crop Development Update in Turkey

Over the last week in the growing region there has been a frost risk.  On the night of the 22nd there was a frost where temperatures dropped to -1 and some damage occurred in the vineyards. The tips and leaves have blackened and these will now not develop in to fruit.

Last night the temperature dropped to -4 and early indications are that there is significant damage,  it is being reported that in some areas the damage could be as high as 70% , but this has yet to be verified.

We have attached pictures of some of the damage from the night of the 22nd and we will give you a further update when we have more information and picture from the vineyards from last night’s damage

At this stage all offers have been withdrawn until a full assessment has been carried out.
