Looks like a touch of sweet in this one

Soil type (terrior): Peat Moss???

Seems this almost could be a red dessert wine, excepting the lower AbV.

Yup…out in the delta we have loam and peat moss which helps with drainage…the vines do great :slight_smile:

not that sweet!!! this is well balanced …try it you will like it :wink:

Just enough RS to smooth it out right? :slight_smile:

Is 8.8 g/l RS the equivalent of 8.8% or 0.88%?

you got it! :slight_smile:

My brain was off by a factor of 10 this morning too; it’s 0.88%.
Given the threshold of perception being closer to 2%, even tho there is only a 3 g/L spread between TA and RS, would suggest closer to off-dry.

Apologies for the earlier brain fart.

From the mouth of our winemaker…8 grams sugar per liter=.8% :slight_smile:


I believe Scott Harvey, Peter, and others have claimed the threshold to be more like 0.3-0.6% depending on the taster and the specific sugars.
