Onward and upward

So yesterday I braved the weather and went to the cellar to top the barrels, for the first time this winter the temperature in the cellar has dropped below 10°C(9,5). While I was there I pulled samples of each of the five remaining barrels of 2011 Modri Pinot. These barrels were intended to make a reserve wine. This morning was spent assembling various blends to find the best result. It is looking like the final blend will be around 700 litres utilising wine from four of the five barrels. It will have 30% new oak, 30% 1yr old oak and 40% 3yr old oak. Im really excited about the potential of this wine, hopefully you folks will like it also. As always time will tell. Hooroo
