Harvest, Crush, Press Chardonnay 2022

It was bitter cold this morning when we started to pick. A big change from a week ago. Today was the last day available before a lot of rainy weather and colder temps.

We ended up with 290 lbs of fruit. 27 gallons of must which pressed into 16 gallons of juice all tucked away for the winter in the freezer.

Brix 21-24°, pH 3.15, TA 8.1
