I’ve started helping The Man of the House more with the wine making. Today we racked wine. That means that TMOTH siphons the wine out of one jug and puts it in another. This is done to separate the good wine from the sediment that’s settled at the bottom of the jugs.
Today we racked the cherry wine (see below) and the merlot. It was interesting to have a taste of the young (not ready to be bottled) merlot wine. To me most young wines taste horrible. The merlot did taste young but it was also good. I’m very excited about it. If it tastes good now what’s it going to be like when it’s ready?
