Second Racking (and sampling)

Performed the second racking at the weekend – siphoning off the wine from one carboy to another leaving all the settled out sludge behind. It’s clarifying nicely – had a little taste and…. it’s wine, and it’s actually not bad at all! Amazing! I’ve certainly drank worse :)

During the second racking I also removed the oak cubes that I’d added as it now has a nice hint of the oak but nothing overpowering. Pretty pleased with it overall. So now I’m thinking about bottling – and most importantly labels…
