-Down To Earth-
Yamhill-Carlton is a vineyard and winery located in the heart of Yamhill, Adelaida West side Districts
Most red wines derive their color from grape skins (the exception being varieties or hybrids of non-vinifera vines which contain juice pigmented with the dark Malvidin 3,5-diglucoside anthocyanin) and therefore contact between the juice and skins is essential for color extraction. Red wines are produced by destemming and crushing the grapes into a tank and leaving the skins in contact with the juice throughout the fermentation (maceration).
Pressing is the act of applying pressure to grapes or pomace in order to separate juice or wine from grapes and grape skins. Pressing is not always a necessary act in winemaking; if grapes are crushed there is a considerable amount of juice immediately liberated (called free-run juice) that can be used for vinification. Typically this free-run juice is of a higher quality than the press juice.
During the primary fermentation, the yeast cells feed on the sugars in the must and multiply, producing carbon dioxide gas and alcohol. The temperature during the fermentation affects both the taste of the end product, as well as the speed of the fermentation.
Our wine is a great combination of hard work of our wine makers and the unique terroir.
For the wine to become a premium quality we use only the best grapes harvested manually.
We firmly believe that the wine we make is capable of competing with world famous brands.
We are a small family winery adhering to these simple principles of quality wine making.
