Grape juice contains sugars or fructose and sucrose. Yeast is a micro organism that is able to convert sugars to alcohol and carbon dioxide. The natural yeasts live on the winery surfaces and therefore are available every year to reproduce themselves whenever a source of sugars becomes available. After the organic grapes are crushed and the juice expressed from their skins the yeast can do its thing in converting the grape juice into wine. The yeasts tht live at Harris Organic have perticular requirements and it is the job of the winemaker to assist the yeasts in there endeavour to convert all the sugar to alcohol.
Organic white wines are made from organic grapes made from our organic white skinned grape varieties. The juice is presssed from the organic grape skins immediately after hand picking.
