Part VI – Raw Milk Chronicle |Neal Yard & Sbrinz|

The cheese begins to flow and we are tasting cheese after cheese after cheese. So where do we begin, I mean where do we end. This round some Neal Yard cheeses from Ireland and some more sbrinz as clients shuffle into the small space, I find a corner with my glass.

The next wine is a 2011 merlot from Weninger, a hearty wine with plenty of merlot ripe fruit yet a grip that may not live in balance for long but we need to wait and see. Perhaps the tannin will help this wine live in balance. Decant it for three hours before drinking it.

They use selective hand harvest, spontaneous fermentation malolactic fermentation and after two weeks of maceration aging in 500 liter wooden barrels for 24 months.
