Organic wine - processing, Château La Canorgue, Cuvée Prestige, red
The grapes are traditionally picked by hand. A part is separated from the panicles and fermented spontaneously together with the larger part of the grapes with panicles by means of the so-called semi-carbonique maceration, i.e. with the whole, undamaged berries still on the panicles. Spontaneous fermentation means that no foreign yeasts are added to the grapes, but that fermentation is fermented with the yeasts on the grapes. However, this assumes that the grapes have not been treated with fungicides in the vineyard. Only with these original yeasts of the grapes can the characteristics of the grapes, the soil and the climate be expressed in the organic wine. This is followed by what is known as lactic acid fermentation, in which the more aggressive malic acid contained is converted into the milder and more tolerable lactic acid. This red wine then matures and refines itself in barriques for a few months until it is bottled without filtering.
