What makes Gere Merlot – Dry red wine so special?
Its uniqueness lies in the fermentation process exclusively done by locally selected indigenous yeast strains. The perfectly ripe, hand-selected grapes from organic vineyards are taken to a cellar, equipped with state of the art technology. Fermentation takes place either in temperature-controlled steel tanks or wooden vats. Following the gentle extraction, the winemakers rack the wines into traditional, top quality Hungarian oak barrels, and after bottling, their ageing continues in bottles.
After the alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the ageing continues in large casks for 8-10 months.
