Merry Christmas!

It's been quite a year but we've made it! Everyone of us struggled in their own way. At Triassic we were able to adapt to the many ever changing challenges with outdoor seating and the support of our loyal wine club members. Thank you all!

From all of us at Triassic, we wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Jim and Sally

CHRISTMAS

Have you ever yearned for something so bad and dreamed about it for years and years? You kept hoping and hoping...then your wish finally came true!

Well, Christmas came early this year. After many years of exhausted effort by many individuals, Tehachapi wine growers have their own AVA designated appellation. We gleefully announce Tehachapi Mountains AVA (American Viticultural Area.) As of January 2021, Tehachapi vintners may use the new AVA on their labels.

There are 250 AVAs in the United States and 140 in California. Now there is one more, Tehachapi Mountains.

Many thanks to Julie Bell and Representative Kevin McCarthy.

Barrel Time

Fermentation

How does wine develop a distinctive taste ?How do wine makers achieve certain taste characteristics or styles from simple grape juice?

Barrel fermentation can have a significant effect on the final wine product. Most often oak barrels made of American oak, created by makers called coopers, are instrument in imparting flavor and subtlety to young wine. Wine in oak barrels allows oxygenation to occur which results in softening of tannins and smoother taste.

Also, chemical compounds called phenols present in the wood, impart other flavors like vanilla, smoke , caramel, spice, woodiness, etc.

A typical wine barrel holds about 59 gallons of wine. In addition to all the chemical activity occurring during fermentation,  the wine will concentrate by evaporation, losing as much as 10% by volume of water and alcohol. Flavors and aromas will deepen and intensify. Wine makers will monitor and barrel taste during this time, making adjustments as required. This is the art of the
winemaker.
