Doom Juice Wine offers a selection of unfiltered wine made from 100% organic grapes. Our varieties contain no added sulphites, no added yeast, and are vegan friendly.
What is unfiltered wine?
Unfiltered wine is a wine that has not undergone the filtration process. Filtration is a winemaking technique that's used to remove solid particles from the juice, such as sediment and bits of grape skin. It often removes proteins, phenols, and tannins suspended in the liquid.
Some winemakers believe that filtration can strip a wine of these flavour-altering compounds as well as its aroma, flavour and colour. Others, meanwhile, believe that it can help to improve a wine's stability and clarity. At Doom Juice Wine, we’re part of the former movement, which is just one reason why our funky wine tastes so refreshingly different from everything else on the market.
How are our wines made?
Doom Juice Wine unfiltered wines are made with grapes that have been crushed and left to ferment with their skins, seeds, and stems intact. This method of production results in wines that are usually darker in colour and fuller-bodied than filtered wines. Our range of Doom Juice Wines – regardless of whether they’re hazy wines or cloudy wines – are in part known for their unique appearance.
How long does it take to create one of our wines?
It takes around 4 to 6 weeks to create an unfiltered wine. This is because the wine is left in contact with the yeast and grape skins for a longer period of time, which gives it a hazy appearance and greater flavour.
This means that it takes significantly longer to produce an unfiltered wine. The main reason for this is that the process of making an unfiltered wine requires more time and effort. The grapes must be crushed by hand, and then the juice must be left to settle.
Why drink unfiltered wine?
Why drink the unfiltered wine available at Doom Juice Wine? We hear you ask. Well, there are several reasons:
For one, filtering can strip away some of the flavour and character of the wine, and who wants that? This means that unfiltered wines have a more complex flavour as they’re able to retain more of the compounds that allow our wines to pack more of a flavourful punch.
Its health benefits
Some people believe that unfiltered wines are healthier than filtered varieties because they contain natural bacteria that can be beneficial for gut health.
But another reason to drink unfiltered wine is that it contains more antioxidants. Antioxidants are beneficial for your health, meaning that drinking unfiltered wine can be a way to get more of these healthy compounds into your diet. A healthy wine? Yes, please!
