Because there was no tank available which was large enough to blend all of our wine, the three tanks and two smaller containers had to be accurately blended by other means, before being put into barrel.
Here’s something we haven’t seen very often – grape seed oil on top of the wine.
After the initial horror, before it was realised what it was, it is easily removed with a piece of kitchen towel.
The wine had settled well and racked very cleanly.
And the lees were very thick and gluggy.
So we had an accurate blend for the first time, and geez – we reckon the wine is looking pretty good.
