Ok so we uncorked the first bottle of Kuhlman Blend from the 2014 vintage. We call it the Kuhlman blend as it combines Leon Millot at 65%, Triompe D'lsace at 15%, and Marechal Foch and Castel at 10% each. The wine is approximately 12.5 - 13% A/Vol with ph of 3.3.
We had very limited skin contact this year as we wanted more light fruity mid-weight wine so we only had 2 days of skin contact. The result was lower colour, less tannin, less astringency, but higher fruit flavour dominating. Very slightly off balance in that regard and if I could turn back time would have gone with 4-5 days skin contact for a perfect wine.
