Pinotage 2014: Malolactic Fermentation

Since day 5 the wine has been in the barrel and fermenting away (I hope!).  This process should take a couple of weeks and I’ll know it’s done when there is no gas leaving the barrel.

The airlock seems to be working.  Here is a video clip that shows how the gas escapes from the barrel and how the airlock prevents any gas from entering.  Quite cool if you ask me.
