c. n.


The production of wines with reddish to purple colours. 1


[Type of vinification in which] the fermentation takes place with the skins, in order to extract the active ingredients (principally tannins and anthocyanins) contained therein. 2
The key difference between white and red wine making is that red wine is made by fermenting the juice, skins and seeds together and then pressing the wine. Depending on the style of wine being made and the condition and ripeness of the stalks, whole bunches of grapes are sometimes fermented along with de-stemmed and/or crushed berries. Again, depending on the grape variety, the style of the desired wine and the condition of the fruit, the winemaker chooses whether or not to crush the berries and to what degree. 3


One of the key issues in red wine making is getting the flavour and colour out of the skins. 4
