Life in Tasmania's Huon Valley, by a blow-in from the mainland
Tuesday, February 21, 2017
It hasn't been a great season for cherry growers in Tasmania. Rain over summer meant much of the fruit split and the crop was smaller than normal. We were offered 40 kilos of split or otherwise damaged cherries, which are now happily fermenting in three large plastic tubs. It smells incredible. After removing the stalks and the mouldy ones, I guess there was about 30 kilos. Kirschwasser, anyone?
