Grainger’s wine blog is

Grainger’s wine blog. The one and only wine blog for all you winos out there.

As I confirmed in my last blog post, the grape harvest for the sparkling Methode Traditionelle started on Monday 28 August. Ridiculously early (last year it was the 19 September) as we have had such hot dry weather over most of the summer. I popped over to an Anjou estate yesterday with some wine tour guests and witnessed the harvest of Chardonnay for the Saumur sparkling appellation. I tried the juice with the winemaker and he gave the acid level at 6.6% and the potential alcohol at 11.5% so just about right; it certainly does not need to be any more maturity. Funnily enough the winemaker missed the first day of the harvest as he was still on holiday!

Wine  blog ing is fun with Grainger’s wine blog. Its the regular spot to catch up on the latest stuff on the wine scene or maybe something quite different.  You never know what might appear.
