Numbers look really good. I like a bit of acidity in my hybrid grapes. What yeast are you using?

I picked from 25 vines, which are 6 years old. I will add Lavin Bourgovin RC 212 and after pressing will add a Malolactic culture. Will also put the carboys out in my shed during the winter for a good cold stabilization.

Oh wow... I might be in over my head if 25 vines produces 20 gallons :HB.
I planted 50 this year!
