Sweet print

pressé doux (F)

In Switzerland, a common designation (also known as "Süßabdruck" or "Pressé doux" in French) for a light red rosé wine. This wine is pressed before or after a relatively short (a few hours), not yet finished maceration and the must is separated from the skins. The term "sweet" refers only to the still sweet must after pressing, because the wine is vinified dry. It corresponds to the Gleichgepressste (Austria), the Kretzer (South Tyrol), the Vin gris (France) and the Weißherbst (Germany).

All aids, work and measures in the vineyard during the vegetation cycle can be found under vineyard care. Complete lists of the numerous cellar techniques, as well as a list of the types of wine, sparkling wine and distillate regulated by wine law can be found under vinification. Comprehensive wine law information can be found under the keyword wine law.
