Teperberg Terra Brut
Vintage Year : 2010
90% Chardonnay grapes
10% French Colombard
Production process :
The grapes were delivered to the winery at night, after a mechanical harvest. At arriving they were immediately gently crushed to obtain the must, which was transferred to a chilled insulated stainless steel tank. The white must was chilled to 12 ℃ to allow the solids to settle.
The must remained for about 24 hours in the stainless steel tank, until all the solids settled and then the clean juice was transferred to another stainless steel tank.
Addition of yeast to the juice started the first fermentation of the juice at a temperature of 13℃ for two weeks, until a white dry wine was obtained.
The wine was subjected to a short maturing process for about four months with new French oak.
In preparation for the second fermentation, the wine was transferred to a pressure tank that can preserve the natural gas which is produced by the alcoholic fermentation, without releasing it to the atmosphere. A little grapes sugar and yeast were added to the wine before the second fermentation and the second alcoholic fermentation process took place in the pressure tank, until the Brut wine was obtained.
The Brut wine continued to mature in that tank, with its yeasts in the “sur lie” method. The Brut continue ti nature in the died yeasts for about 3 months, while stirring the sediments in a battonage process.
