Down in the bowels of TWWIAGE is a bubbling cauldron of 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon. A lot of fiddly steps are being followed by the production team to get this particular fermentation going again, but restarting a stuck fermentation essentially involves a new yeast selection and a lot of granulated sugar...and perhaps throwing in the odd "eye of newt" and "toe of frog" for good measure. The colour in the above photograph is off a little, in reality the fist-sized bubbles are a wonderful blue-purple. Bubble on little yeasties!
