Suggestions:

Pinot Noir: Add water to bring brix down to 24

Sauvignon Blanc: Bring the TA up to 7.0 g/L with Tartaric Acid addition.

Grenache Noir: Raise the TA 2 points to 6 with Tartaric Acid addition.

 

Cabernet Sauvignon: Water down to 25 brix. Add tartaric acid to water - 7 grams of tartaric acid per liter of water.

Calculator for Acid Additions

"Acid rate addition" means that difference between desired TA and current TA

A handy formula for the DIY crowd taken from Dan Warrick's excellent book - The Way to Make Wine:

volume of must x 0.8 = volume of finished wine

(desired TA - original TA [in g/100ml]) x gallons of finished wine x 3.785 [liters per gallon] x 10 = grams of tartaric acid to add

Accurate arrival dates for wine grapes are impossible to predict. In a typical year, harvest begins in late-August and continues through the end of October. This year's harvest is looking like it will be typical, starting in late-August (White grapes) and ending in September to early-October (Red grapes).
