What are the signs that the grapes are ready for harvest?
- Colour of the grapes
- Colour of the stems and seeds (usually brownish)
- Grapes detach easily from the stem
- Sweet taste without bitterness
- Low acidity and higher pH
Monitoring the grape maturity is a great way to help determine the best moment for harvest. The test includes pH, Total Acidity, Density, Brix, and Sugars and results are available in under 24 hrs. A sampling of 100 grapes is sufficient for testing.
Maturity Monitoring: pH, Total Acidity, Density, Brix, Sugars. Required volume: 100 grapes or 100 ml, Turnaround: less than 24 hrs. https://oenoscience.com/en/individual-panels/
