Hey folks,
Just racked my Gewurz for the first time. Reading 0 brix. Should I let it sit and stir the lees a few times a week (batonnage) to get more flavor? I am not sure how important it is for Gewurtz.

Second question. How common is it to do Mlf for Gewurz? I am fairly new, but I can follow directions pretty well. Should I consider it?

Thanks for advice!

I don't know about doing Baton age on a Gewurztraminer. I do know that I wouldn't do an mlf on a wine that is normally very fruity and floral. There are some that have gone through mlf. I haven't ever tasted any, so it is just my feeling about it.
