whole-bunch fermentation

Definition

Wine

  • a traditional winemaking technique originating in the Burgundy region of France, but adopted around the world (particularly with Pinot Noir grapes) in which an entire bunch of grapes is fermented, rather than individual berries. This reduces handling and improves the flavour and colour of the wine.
