Big bucket of grape juice

Last week the 5-gal bucket of Chenin Blanc juice came in. I waited for it to warm up to 60 degrees, rehydrated the yeast and pitched.

The juice didn’t smell at all how I expected it would, it had a very mineral smell. The taste was great however, and now that it’s fermenting it smells very clean and floral with citrus notes. Looking forward to this!
