Definizione

Crushing is the process of gently squeezing the berries and breaking the skins to start to liberate the contents of the berries.

Nota

Crushing is employed to cause berry breakage and juice release from the grapes. It is the beginning of the juice, skin pulp and seed contact that will influence the extent of extraction from these grape components. A secondary aspect of the crushing process is the elimination of the stems from the juice and skins and the isolation and collection of them for disposal.

Contesto

Crushing the whole clusters of fresh ripe grapes is traditionally the next step after the harvest in the wine making process.
