Winemaking The grapes are harvested by machine by night to capitalise on the cool night time temperatures. They are then destemmed and undergo short skin contact maceration. The juice is racked at low temperatures (7°C) and temperatures are regularly checked during fermentation. Small amounts of yeast are sometimes added at the start of fermentation to improve development of aroma.
