GRAPES! (2008 Riesling to be precise)
It is now officially on till the break of dawn. The 2008 vintage has commenced with Riesling coming in for our Bright White. Due to crop loss from the frost this year, Rodney's Vineyard fruit (the stuff that made up the '07 Bright White) was unavailable. We did find some more fruit from just down the road, and the good news is that the fruit and juice taste great!
Something else to look forward to is the introduction of a tiny amount of sweet Riesling this year. Stay tuned for more deets.
If you care, the numbers were: 21.6 brix, 3.1 pH, and 8.25 TA.
