@NorCal did you toss in a few fork-fulls of whole cluster with that Tempranillo? I don't have the option with frozen must, but we've done it a few times with fresh Amador fruit and had good results, additional spice, no need to fear green stems at low rates. Looks like you guys are having fun!
Funny you should mention that. We had one cluster that had eluded the pitch fork and was thrown in the bin whole and I said that now we can say it was partially whole cluster fermented, in jest.
It's now 6:35am and Super Palate kid and I are driving to get the Chardonnay this morning, while @4Score and @Busabill readies the equipment.
