What is the % of insect tannins in the average grape batch? Didn't notice these earwigs in SA grapes until after looking at photos. we inspected the grapes pretty good and didn't see these nor notice during crush.
I've seen insects in almost every grape batch I have done from California, Chile and now SA. Grasshoppers to caterpillars and other stuff. My bet there is more than we realize.
So I'm just going to pretend they are natural tannin additions.
