Winemaking notes

The harvest for Midalidare Pinot Gris takes place in the early mornings, in mid-September. Hand-picked grapes are carried out with 10-12 kg boxes.

After immediate 24-hour cooling the grapes are carefully double sorted by hand. At first the whole clusters are sorted and after being destemmed, the second sorting of the grapes is carried out. The finest selection of Pinot Gris grapes are sent by gravity for gentle pressing. A cold soak takes place in order to allow aromas from the skin to penetrate the grape juice. The grapes are than strained and delicately pressed into stainless steel vats. Clarification for a few days preceded the yeasts introduction and slow fermentation at controlled temperature. Upon finishing the fermentation, the wine is cooled and kept on the lees for certain period, batonnage is carried out if necessary Filtration, clarification, blending and bottling complete the winemaking process.
