By early evening it was finally time to put the wine into barrels. Working with barrels is a very satisfying thing for this winemaker.
The wine had retained great colour after additions of 65 ppm of SO2 and some tartaric acid.
And while filling the barrels, we were pleased to be visited by Caroline Winter of the ABC Country Hour program, who had come across this blog on the internet. Her program about the wine should air shortly.
Ten barrels safely put to bed.
