The rewards and frustrations of home winemaking

Bottling Aussie Chard

Cal Claassen TP Aus Chard2 2007

I actually got 30 full bottles plus 2 glasses to taste. Had to filter, did not completely clear, although pretty clear, could have bottled. Already pretty well developed. Fruity nose of apples and pears with hint of vanilla. Greenish-gold (and clear) in color. Round flavors of apple with citrus flower and some vanilla, a little tangy. Really very nice for the day of bottling!
