Vinification

The BIO-block of Kudigora vineyard is managed in full compliance with the principals and concepts of organic grape growing. Fully matured grapes are hand-picked at the end of September. Soft de-stemming and crushing is followed by fermentation at controlled temperature( 23-28°C) on indigenous yeast found on the grape skin. Skin and cap management is performed by delestage and remontage. After 5-7 days of maceration, when usually the desired level of the residual sugar is reached, fermentation is stopped by cooling, in order to retain the natural sweetness and freshness of the wine. Afterwards, until bottling wine is kept cold at around -2+2°C.
