Racked

Shahrokh and Esteban racked the 2012 ‘LH Syrah. ¬†They started with:

  1. 60 gallon barrel
  2. 15 gallon barrel
  3. 5 gallon carboy

When finished they had:

  1. 60 gallon barrel
  2. 15 gallon barrel
  3. 2-3 gallons for glass

Not yet sure what they did with it.

They sulphited 25 ppm:

  • 60 gallon barrel: 100 mL 10% solution
  • 15 gallon barrel: 25 mL 10% solution
  • not sure what they did with the extra wine

They also splashed the wine heavily, as their was some reductive nose going on. I tried a little Cu in a glass, and it cleaned right up. We will wait a few days, and recheck it. If it needs to bu copper fined, we will do it right away and rack again in a few days.
