Some shots of the sort at Amber on Thursday — a beautiful warm day made a bit stressful due to the crush of everything ripening at once (and everyone needing equipment at once).
Though, here’s my Westy resting, appearing very unstressed.
The 115 and Pommard clones were certainly interesting this year with the cool summer and late heat; berries smaller, a bit haggard, some shrivel and minor amounts of rot — but the flavors were auspicious, nice mature brown, nutty notes from the seeds and stems too.
Yours truly forking some fruit (this is the 115) onto the sorting belt.
Crushing outside on a warm day, dry-ice pellets in the must are good practice to keep spoilage organisms at bay.
