Spain 2019 provided an excellent harvest, all varietals showing true character, flavor and body. So that is pretty exciting on its own, but for me, the coolest part of the harvest was haveing 3 friends fly over and join me in the vineyard, working on harvesting merlot. We carefully marked the containers with grapes they harvested, and when we unloaded them, brough them in to our facility to began making wines with them. Since October, we have been collectively making the wine, and Friday, March 5, we will be doing a tasting, comparing 2 different oak profiles, before making a final call. If you want to follow that adventure, search #100bottlesofmerlot on instagram.
A better grape could not have been chosen for this project, 25 brix, ph 3.71, a fantastic place to start making world class wine, as we relentlessly pursue the perfect wine cellar!
