Last Press Of 2008So we pressed off our last lot yesterday, the Mourvedre, after 16 days cuvaison. The shot above was made by Anaba intern Jon Cave; Eddie (red shirt) and I are in the wood tank, which is held up by the forklift as we shovel the pomace into the press basket. Anaba intern #2 Jordan Via is in the foreground.
I'm glad it's done, but surprisingly knackered. In the larger context this was not a difficult harvest.
