White Wines.

White wines tend to be focused on the fresh fruit flavours. In the fall, grapes are harvested when sufficiently ripe. Young grapes tend to have lower sugar and much higher acidity but when fully ripe acidity and sugar levels are in balance and the varietal flavours have developed. Grapes will be destemmed and crushed to release the juice. Many of these flavours are bound in the skins. A period of soaking will help to extract these flavours into the juice. The crushed grapes are then pressed and the collected juice is allowed to settle and clear juice is transferred to the fermentor.

 

Yeast is added to the juice. Many different strains of yeast are available to develop the characteristic flavours of each grape. When the ferment has finished, yeast and grape solids can settle and the new wine is transferred again. Usually, all this activity occurs in stainless steel fermentors which will not impart any added flavours. Some wines such as Chardonnay benefit from being fermented in oak barrels. Prior to bottling, the wine will be adjusted for sulphite levels to prevent future oxidation and then filtered to produce a sparkling clean product. We choose to package or wines in screw cap bottles as this method maintains the flavours and quality.
