Ideal for white wines
As part of the BioThermo range there is also the Chiller variant, which is an all-purpose solution best suited to meeting the needs of processing white grapes.
It is distinctly innovative in affording the opportunity for their cold maceration prior to fermentation (MPF).
In white wines, it offers some very interesting advantages:
- extraction of a greater quantity of aromatic substances, while avoiding any excessive extraction of polyphenols and easily oxidated substances
- a more straightforward cleansing of the must to ensure full respect for the variety of grape
In the Chiller version, the Bio-thermo enables very low temperatures to be achieved, even below zero, without using expensive products such as liquid nitrogen or dry ice, and drastically reducing the operating costs as a result. This has been achieved thanks to the use of a normal refrigerator unit for cooling purposes.
