Facts

 

FERMENTATION/MICROBIOLOGICAL PHASE:

Grapes + yeast Enzymes ----------> Alcohol + CO2 + ATP (heat)

Dry wines: are the result of an unstopped finished fermentation

Fruity wines:  are the result of a stopped unfinished fermentation.

This process is challenging since it requires to find the right balance

before stopping the fermentation.

 

NOTES:

1. Cork: some of our wines contain some cork ships. It’s alright. In fact, cork is

a good absorbent of some of the newly formed substances during bottle aging.

2. Sediments: some of our wines contain some grape sediments. It’s alright.

They add character to the wine.

3. Port: once in a while some our Port bottles leak. It’s alright. It’s due to wine

expansion because of high alcohol content and temperature variation.

In fact, matured Ports in wooden barrels, whose permeability allows a small

amount of oxygen exposure, experience what is known as oxidative aging.
