In Autumn, Harvest: Cluster Must in Images

In September and October talk a lot of the making wine, the time of the vintage. To obtain the prized wine there are dozens of steps to follow. With these images taken a couple of weeks ago in the Alt Emporda, I would like to explain the stage of mature cluster to the grape juice.

In family wineries few hectares, it is easy to follow. Between the rows of vineyards, the boxes for the collection are filling with clusters, always collected by hand. Sometimes the grains are in a State such as Garnacha that you will see below. Others, for various reasons but the main one is meteorology, live dry or damaged grains that must be disposed.

The grape pickers they represent the first selection of the bunches, scrapped that not can be leveraged to obtain the juice. Boxes are piling up and are carried into the cellar without delay. The winemaker He has been checking the ripeness of the grape, and after waiting patiently this time, time now is at a premium.

In a tape like this, you select again the clusters newly collected with expert eyes. In the bottom picture you can see that the tape is in the form of ramp, the route passes by the desparrilladora. The Woody part or stalk is separated from the grain by this machine.

Grain and scrape they are separated forever. In the photo gallery you can see mountain of woody waste abroad. Far from able to eliminate if nothing else, these scratches will be inspected to check that they are not used for manufacture ethyl alcohol, prohibited by law.

The possible causes the grains of grapes to the Press, When it is full the machine is operated and an iron press the fruits. The grape juice that gets water the bottom tray. I love the smell that follows, so sugary that you empacha more than one sense.

Have you tried freshly pressed grape juice? Although the photos at the beginning of the post are of the variety Garnatxa Negra, the day of my visit the protagonist was the target Picapoll. The liquid is murky, with an intensely sweet aroma. I like although drinking too much juice can sit wrong.

Directly from the media tray, goes through the last tube that leads to the stainless steel drums turn into. Start the feast of yeasts and sugars, the must will be evolving toward an alcoholic drink: start the fermentation.

I want to thank the team of the winery Martin-Faixó for hosting me this morning at the end of September in the vineyards and at the winery. The Vintage 2012 It has been lower than last year despite talk of a production of high quality grape. We will celebrate it.
