Been making wine for few years now and primarily from fresh grapes. I play with juice and a kit from time to time but the main wine I drink is from CA grapes. I have 7 barrels n my wine cellar from all sizes and age ranging from 6 gallons to 30 gallons. Only two of the barrels are new this past season. The he rest have seen some wine. This past season like all the rest I completed mlf then racked to barrels taking out previous years. Added about 1 gram of kmeta per gallon of wine. That was right before xmas..... I just checked all the barrels yesterday and none really need any kmeta added... After almost 4 months I have added none! Yes gone down a little but very little... Yes, I used brand new titrants and calibrated my sc-300 twice... I am not complaining but never had this before! Win smells and taste very clean. Did I just get a good batch of grapes? I am very clean and cautious of air so no fights there but still very surprising. Anyone ever experience this?
