Mash contact

Special processes in which intensive contact with the mash is brought about during mash fermentation by, for example, a long mash standing time and/or overpumping or by means of technical devices such as rotofermenters or autovinification. Sometimes the term is also used as a synonym for so-called alternative wines.
