Red wine without malolactic
- megapolisomancy Sep 6, 2009 12:18 PM
I never had given much thought to the production process of the wines that I like but I recently discovered that almost all the white wines that I enjoy have not gone through malolactic or new oak.
I am aware that what is an advantage in whites does not need to be an advantage in reds and my understanding is that malolactic is the rule for reds. Still, I am wondering if there are any wine producers that forgo or limit malolactic in reds and produce interesting results.
For example, do the Trimbach Pinot Noirs go through malolactic?
