Nothing is quite like the feeling that I get when a wine I've made is in the bottle.
All the time the wine is in tank or barrel is seems a little bit unfinished. It seems more vulnerable to outside influences.
There's closure, pun intended, when the cork or cap is in place.
So today, after a week's delay and some down time on the line, I finally bottled the Township 7 Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Un-oaked Chardonnay from the 2005 vintage.
They are all excellent wines and destined to win many accolades. My friend in PR told me this.
