We racked off of the gross lees into a bunch of white food grade tubs. Put them in the mule, and drove them to the wine cellar.

We then pumped the wine into a 60 gallon and a 15 gallon barrel. We didn’t quite fill them all the way.

We also inoculated for MLF with Enoferm Alpha.

The gross lees still seemed to have a lot of wine in it, so we put that in the 30 gallon tub to sit for a few days. If it still smells good, we will get what we can on Monday or Tuesday.

Very happy to be in barrel!

Also tasted, topped and sulphited all of the other barrels.

Worked from  8AM to noon.
