MÜLLER THURGAU CAPRILE

Origin

This Müller Thurgau grows at an elevation of 800 m. (2,500 ft.) on well-arranged terraced slopes of the Lowlands. The favourable altitude of the vineyards on limestone soils, the gentle slope of the hillside, and ideal sunshine give the grapes of this varietal an excellent maturation.

Vinification

The grapes are pressed and the stems are removed in the pneumatic tank press. Before being pressed, a 6 – 8 hour long cold maceration takes place in order to enhance the fruitiness of the wine. Afterwards, the grapes are gently pressed and clarified through the natural settling of sediments. The alcoholic fermentation is carried out with pure strains of yeast at a controlled temperature of 19 °C (66 °F) in stainless steel tanks.
