The History of
The NOCTURNE range integrates wines
from noble grape varieties, harvested
manually in the cool of the night, to
preserve the richness of aromas and
intensity of taste intact.
Chilly grapes are firmer grapes, so there’s
less hassle from the winemaker about
bruising the fruit while picking.
At night, the sugar levels in the grapes
are stable, and the acid levels are better.
Picking grapes when they’re cool reduces
the energy needed to cool them before
they can be pressed or fermented.
This also helps minimize the oxidative
impact of the enzymes in the grapes.
The wines in Purcari Nocturne range
benefit from a natural chilling effect
which protects the freshness of the grapes
and the purity of the fruit flavor.
