3 - Wine Terms

1. Must: A term used to describe the combination of grape pulp, skins, seeds and sometimes stems that is fermented to produce wine.The skins provide color and flavor. The seeds provide tannins and texture. The pulp makes the juice. The stems can provide additional tannins but are generally not used.

2. Pomace : The pulpy material this remains after the MUST has been pressed and the wine has been removed. This constitutes about 1/3 of total weight of the original grapes.

3. Gross Lees : The yeast carcasses that fall out of suspension forming a thick yellowish sludge on the bottom of the fermentation tanks and barrels. If left in contact with the wine, they may increase mouth feel though may cause spoilage if not managed properly.

2 - Quotes from Me & Others:

1. "Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us be thankful." ~ Original Author Unknown

2. "Do not necessarily believe what you hear from others, nor what you see from others, but only those things that you have personally experienced yourself, and then only partially believe it" ~ The Zen Winemaker
