In early July, I was apprehensive about the crop this year. The lack of water had slowed shoot development, and with the lake level, the lowest it had ever been, my vineyard manager was being judicial with what water we had. Luckily, I caught it in time, took the risk, and used what water we had to reinvigorate the vines. They responded well, and now we have a very healthy crop. Barring any significant heat waves, the need for watering should be minimal and well make through with what is in the well and get to harvest in good shape.
