    21. 28. Conclusions Warming is a complex syndrome including biologically relevant factors such as higher vapour pressure deficit with direct consequences for grapevine ripening. Early ripening associated with the warming syndrome over recent decades has been primarily related to shifts in onset rather than increase in rate of ripening. A simple onset-rate model can be coupled with (i) short-term temperature forecasts to predict the trajectory of sugaring for management purposes, and (ii) long-term records of temperature to produce probabilistic profiles of maturity date.
