Organic wine processing Bordeaux Château Rioublanc, red
The quality of a wine originates primarily in the vineyard - and is achieved by professional processing of the soil and the vines taking into account the climate and the weather. To this end, a well-trained team of permanent staff is available at Château Rioublanc.
The grapes are harvested mechanically with subsequent sorting by hand and an automatic sorting system of the type Mistral, which works with the help of air. The yield of 52 hectoliters per hectare produces approx. 180,000 liters of red bio-Bordeaux.
After the harvest, the grapes are freed from the panicles, and after 24 hours the juice, which is extracted independently, is added to the fermented berries. The so-called cold maceration at 13° C.. The fermentation is done with the grapes own yeast. This process lasts 5 days and facilitates later pressing. During this time a regular pumping of the mash increases the density of the wine.p class="line-height-150 cke-line-height">Afterwards the fermentation continues for another 10 days, then the liquid is separated by gentle pressing from the berries and kernels. After the end of the malolactic fermentation, the wine ripens for a year in tanks (2/3) and 1/3 in French oak barrels.
Before filling this organic Bordeaux in bottles in September of the following year, it is only lightly filtered.
