Definizione

Technique used to clarify white grape juice prior to fermentation [by lowing its temperature in the tank] to below 5°C.1

Nota

Clarification is usually accomplished by a technique called cold settling. The recently press juice is allowed to settle overnight in a refrigerated tank at a temperature below 10°C. The next day the juice is racked off of the settled lees. This can result in a significant loss of volume. Wineries may typically filter the lees to recover the juice and produce a "lees wine". This wine can be used for blending.2

Contesto

For small wineries, cold settling or small flotation units are the most cost effective alternative for juice clarification.3
