@joeswine did you add the 2 Tbsp. of tannin to the Shiraz, like you did the Malbec?

Not to the sharaz yo you would want to keep it fruity however. If
I did it would be in the secondary.

Ok, thanks. I may just add 1 Tbsp. in the secondary and skip the primary.

Fontana Chardonnay has been sitting in carboy for the last three months. Added zest from 1/2 grapefruit last night and will rack off it tomorrow night, add kmeta then bottle next week. Thinking that little bit more of zest should give it some more character.

Fontana Shiraz should be here this week. Will add some oak, tannin and blueberries and blackberries to it.

Have you sampled the chardenay ? If it's a little hard dpash rack it and let it sit a little longer. Sharza sounds good I rather have it more fruit forward than oak however tannins in the secondary will balance out the need for wood structure.

Sampled last night. Tasted pretty good. I am not a big Chardonnay fan but it was ok. Maybe just a little flat, but good nonetheless. That is why I am not going to let the zest sit in more than two days.
Live and learn, right? If it turns out too much, I will make a note for next time.

Yeah, I hope the Shiraz turns out well.
