Two Stage Grapes

Chenin blanc grapes photographed in Vouvray on 19 June, 
showing developing grapes left and flowers on the right.
This year, because of the frosts in April that occurred after an initial warm spell, the grapes didn't know whether they were coming or going. Many vines have grapes that are pea sized from flowers in late May along side tiny newly formed berries that have developed from a second flowering in mid June. This is potentially a problem at harvest time, as they could still be at different stages of development.
