This week: Cold soak
What's the purpose of this winemaking technique? What styles of wine is it used for?
The purpose of cold soaking, pre-fermentation, the juice and skins is primarily done to allow the extraction of softer tannins and higher concentration of colors. Typically, this will result in a more approachable youthful drinking experience. Varieties are typically cold soaked include Nebbiolo, Grenache and Pinot Noir.
