The balance between pH and acidity is a delicate one that you must pay close attention to as you are making wine. The ripeness of the fruit and type of grape varietal will dictate how you have to work with that fruit to produce a wine that meets your desired style goals.

Kian Tavakoli, winemaker for Crushpad, explains when you do, and when you don't want to think about including whole clusters in your fermentation. For some varieatals, in some years, it can enhance aromas, and other desirable characteristics in a wine. In other years the stems are simply too green to include any whole clusters... Doing so would give your wine green tannins that can make a wine harsh.

Fining can be used to clarify and soften wines. Fining is the process of clarifying and stabilizing a wine. A fining agent is mixed in to bind with particles suspended in wine that would make it appear cloudy when poured into a glass. Since fining agents are slightly heavier than wine, the bound particles precipitate out and settle to the bottom of the tank. Sometimes you might fine a wine to clean it up if it is cloudy, other times you might wish to soften the wine by precipitating out compounds that are astringent. Most red wines won't need fining but whites benefit from the process so they remain crystal clear as they age in the bottle.

Some people insist on filtering, others are proud to avoid it - You decide. Most white wines are filtered prior to bottling, and some reds are. Filtering can clarify a wine so that it sparkles in your glass, but if you filter too heavily it can strip character from the wine. How do you decide what level of filtration, if any, is appropriate for your wine? Well, you ask a guy who has 25+ years experience making that call. Crushpad's Chief Winemaker, Michael Zitzlaff explains your options.
