I have read many different opinions but thought I would ask here. My whites cleared quickly, so I polished and bottled. I had some left over and enjoyed a fabulous early wine or two.
However, I do love my reds, with Zins being my favorite. I have 6 carboys of different reds with oak cubes in them. They started very sweet tasting, but after a month in the carboys, they are rounding out nicely.
My question is, should I continue to let the wine rest in the carboy, or should I polish and bottle?
The wine I have pulled with my thief is very clear and bright already.
Knowing these wines will be resting until fall, I am eager to start the next batches…
