Punching Down

Punching down is a method of cap management used by winemakers. The winemakers need to break up the skins, stems, and seeds which form a cap over the fermenting wine in order to maximise the contact between the fermenting wine and the skins. This allows maximum extraction of flavour, tannins, and colour.
