Wines & Vines - Wine Industry News Headlines - Winery Shows Off Flash Extraction

Posted using ShareThis

This does not thrill me. Another way to cheat nature and real winemaking and viticulture talents. Checkout this from the article:

"Cortessis said Flash-Détente is most appropriate for use on low-quality grapes. But he added that it had other advantages, such as the ability to create a variety of styles from the same grapes. And for large-scale producers, he said, Flash-Détente is “a way to short-circuit the red winemaking process.” When the juice is fermented without the skins, there’s no pumping over or punching down, and no dirty work of mucking skins and seeds out of the fermentation tanks."
