Obtained from selected grapes, harvested at the optimum stage of maturity and immediately soft pressed, this package contains whole crushed grapes including juices, skins and seeds or other solids.
Adding the crushed grape pack to your juice and leaving it in contact for a period of time, evoking the maceration process of a traditional winery, will enhance the flavor of your finished wine. It will also add palate weight and contribute to increase the levels of anthocyanins and total polyphenols.
On day 1 put the skins into straining bag, add grape juice, save extra juice (if any) for topping up when racking to secondary. When primary fermentation is finished remove the grape skins and squeeze thoroughly to get as much of the pulp as possible into the secondary fermentation stage.
