10-10-10 The Sequel

Ok, all the grapes pressed now.

Small, but beautiful. 1,600 litres of Riesling and 900 litres of Sipon.

"All things considered" (or the equivalent in Slovenian) is definitely the phrase of the vintage. All things considered.... good quality, good size, relatively good sugar. Have heard some stories about people only reaching 59 Oechsle as they had no choice but to harvest or lose everything - now that's not a lot of natural sugar.

Of course, sugar isn't everything and acidity will most likely be something to watch once fermentations are complete, but for the moment it's a job well done.

Tomorrow is another day....
