c. n.


Room especially equipped for refrigerating musts before fermentation (musts coming from a warm crop, or just before racking, etc.) or for refrigerating wine in order to facilitate the precipitation of tartar before bottling. 1


Once the wine has finished fermenting and has been checked to make sure it has reached the right gravity, it is again transferred into another glass carboy. We then add sorbate and metabisulphate to stop the fermentation process and stop any airborne infection spoiling the wine. The wine is also ‘whizzed’ for a further 3 days. This is done to expel all remaining carbon dioxide left in the wine, which will also help the clearing process. Once this has been done, the batches are moved to the cold room to clear. This takes varying lengths of time depending on the wine style; the reds normally taking longer than the whites. 2


Ageing: Kept in a cold store at 0°C. 3
