Taking away sunburn damages

Because of very hot weather and high radiation during the summer a lot of grapes could be sunburned. Almost all clusters that were directly exposed to the sun were damaged.

These pictures were taken four weeks after the sunburn occurred. It is obvious that the burnt berries are drying out but nevertheless they will still have a negative impact if they were to be harvested.
