Message in a bottle

Stormhoek bottling 07 12 05.jpg

The Stormhoek brand looks like it is printed on the bottle.
In fact, it’s printed on to clear film and we have to get this on to the bottle, smooth, and snug, without any trapped air bubbles.
You can’t put it on by hand and many machines are just as bad.
The air bubbles make white spots and the bottle appears to have a case of snowy measles.
So we have had to learn a lot about label application engineering.
Its all part of the fun of winemaking.

Answer to the Viognier conundrum.
We have added a few litres of our own hand-made Chenin Blanc.
