Drenching hampers wine harvest
South Australia’s wet weather has thrown much of the state’s winegrape harvest into upheaval. Heavy falls have hit key regions at a critical time. Rain totals in the past 24 hours include 26.8 millimetres at Clare, 24.8 at Nuriootpa and 62mm at Renmark. The chairman of the state’s winegrape council, Simon Berry, says potential disease problems are just part of what is a worrying weather event, reports ABC News.
