Racking the Red (2010)

Adi recently started racking the 2010 red wines out of the 4000L wooden vats on Kalmoesfontein. The rackings were done when the moon was just right and just after September, which means it’s time to actually do something in the cellar for a change…

 Step one, look serious while opening the valve… 
 When the flow decreases, open the door with manly force… 

 Watch the beautiful wine flow out… 
 Here you can see the lees at the bottom of the vat.
and lastly Adi makes sure all the wine is siphoned off the lees…

Exciting stuff as another vintage of great wine is on its way…
