Thinning, income regulation

By "thinning" or "green harvest" is meant the premature cutting out of grapes to reduce grape crops about 4 to 6 weeks before the actual harvest. The still immature grapes are dropped on the ground. This increases the quality of the must obtained from the remaining grapes.

To bend

Part of the vine work. It follows the cutting of the vines and consists of bending the remaining vines (the fruit wood) sideways and tying them to the Wingerts wire in one operation.

bottle fermentation

After the sparkling wine has been bottled, the fermentation takes place in the bottle. The maturation lasts at least nine months. During this time, the yeast settles. Then the bottles are used almost horizontally in Rüttelpulte. By shaking and steepening the bottles, the yeast sinks into the neck of the bottle. Then the bottlenecks are immersed in a cold brine, while the Hefepfropfen freezes on the bottle cap. Now follows the Dégorgieren , that is with the removal of the crown cork comes out by the pressure of the frozen Hefepfropfen....

slate

The designation that a wine tastes sparkling, is related to the content of carbonic acid. The gas is produced during the fermentation in addition to the alcohol and is something completely natural in the wine. A sparkling young white wine has a share of 1 g / l, for red wine but the proportion should not exceed 0.6 g / l. Other names for sparkling are also fresh or tingling.

tannin

Tannins (tannins) occur mainly in the grape stalk, the kernels and the skins. The pulp does not contain tannin. White wines contain no tannins, as the grapes are pressed immediately and so the tannin does not have time to pass from the solid ingredients in the must. Thus, the occurrence of tannin is limited to the red wines. However, the grape varieties are relevant for the tannin content.

terroir

This refers to the wine-defining unit of vineyard (geological component), microclimate, grape variety and winemaking in each winery (= natural and human factors).
