Decode “Vintage pulp” : Good wine comes from good grain

Good wine is made, but also “planted”. “Qu is the bone of wine, grain is the meat of wine”, raw grain, is the leading role of Chinese liquor brewing. The inherent “characteristic” of grain determines the most charming flavor in liquor.

From a full grain in the field to a cup of fragrant vintage raw liquor on the table, gujing Gong Wine is not only a long fermentation in the cellar for more than 160 days and the hard work of countless wine makers, but also a history of ancient Well people following the nature and selecting raw grain.

The famous liquor experts Shen Yifang and Gao Jingyan commented on the vintage original liquor series of Gujinggong wine: “the color is clear and transparent, the cellar aroma is quiet and elegant, the mellow aroma is pleasant, the harmony is full, the aftertaste is long, and the luzhou-flavor liquor style is prominent, which meets the concept and demand of modern people.” This unique style not only benefits from the perfect combination of traditional technology and modern technology, but also benefits from the excellent ecological raw food.

Base planting: to ensure the “grain” heart

“Huainan si” says: “the beauty of qing Dynasty is credited with leiqiang.” Sweet wine, is credited with farming tools leiqiang. It shows the importance of raw grain in Chinese traditional brewing culture.

There are many kinds of grain for liquor making, and different raw materials for liquor making can give liquor different flavor. The gujinggong vintage raw liquor has very strict requirements on five distillery raw grains: wheat originates from high-quality wheat producing areas in Huanghuai region and is rich in carbohydrates, protein and starch; Sorghum produced in western Liaoning, full grain, high starch content; Corn comes from the main producing areas in North and northeast China, and rice and glutinous rice must also be easy to ferment and saccharify.

In June this year, in Longkang Farm of Huaiyuan, Anhui province, the harvest of 50,000 mu of wheat was started. Dozens of large combined harvesters were started together, and the scene was very spectacular.

Huaiyuan, located on the Huang-Huai Plain, is a subtropical humid monsoon region with four distinct seasons, mild climate and sufficient sunshine. The wheat here is the raw material for making wine and fine koji. In addition, Gujinggong Wine has also established a number of “gujinggong Wine vintage raw pulp and high-quality wheat planting bases of 10,000 mu” in the surrounding areas represented by Longkang Farm in the province.

In order to ensure the yield and quality of wheat specially used for vintage raw pulp brewing, Longkang Farm of Anhui National Reclamation Group strictly follows the “five unities” in the process of wheat planting, that is, unified varieties, unified site selection, unified field management, unified harvest, unified storage.

“In the process of wheat growth, we use mechanized spring tillage, manual removal of miscellaneous, scientific field management, from harvest to delivery, to ensure that the wheat does not fall to the ground, carefully planted the vintage raw pulp brewing special wheat, fully in accordance with the standards for delivery.” “The purchasing department of Gujing Group comes to our farm regularly to check on the growth of the wheat,” said Du Xiangfei, a longkang farm employee.

A full grain of wheat, in the eyes of the ancient well brewer, is a pile of fragrant curving blocks, drops of mellow wine. The quality of distillery wheat is guaranteed by selecting high quality varieties and planting in base to control the source of distillery raw materials.

Good food makes good wine. Shan Hong, director of gujing group’s purchasing center, said, “Gujing has also established several high-quality sorghum planting bases covering 10,000 mu in northeast China.”

During the National Day holiday last year, the “Gujinggong Wine vintage raw pulp 10000 mu high quality sorghum planting base” located in Fuxin City, Liaoning province and Chifeng City, Inner Mongolia Entered the harvest period. After soaking up the sun, the sorghum becomes solid and full, which is the best raw material for the original pulp of the year.

Such a high quality raw grain planting base, there are a lot of Gujinggong wine. The farm signed a planting contract with Gujing Group, and the planting process was guided by experts from the Provincial Academy of Agricultural Sciences, from seed selection to growth to harvest and warehousing. On the basis of meeting the national standards, it should also meet the higher “gujing standards”.

Fine control: improve the “grain” heart

Every drop of wine contains the taste of nature and is a magical sublimation of food.

Friends who love wine know “sorghum fragrance, rice net, corn sweet, wheat chong, glutinous rice soft.”

Different brewing materials play different roles. Sorghum is sweet and warm, rich in fatty acids, iron and protein, and has the function of invigorating the spleen and stomach; Rice sweet sex flat, rich in B vitamins, with the role of filling, spleen and stomach; Glutinous rice contains protein, fat, sugar, calcium, phosphorus, iron, vitamin B group and starch and so on. It has the functions of nourishing deficiency, antiperspiring, invigorating spleen and warming stomach. Wheat is sweet, flat and slightly cold, has the effect of invigorating the spleen and nourishing the heart, and is also an important source of heat and plant protein. Corn sweet and flat, rich in dietary fiber, with spleen moistening, appetizing, ningxin role. It is these original grains, which play different roles, gathered together in the ancient well and blended in the thick wine aroma of the vintage original pulp.

And the role of raw grain in winemaking to play the ultimate, we must choose high quality raw grain.

Even if it is the sorghum of own raw grain base, wheat, also cannot enjoy “guarantee send” privilege. In order to enter the raw material warehouse of vintage raw pulp, we must go through a strict “promotion” road, through several elimination, classification and selection.

Autumn harvest season, the original grain from the planting base to Gujing Group, transport vehicles after thorough cleaning, adhere to the special car. At the granary gate of Gujing Group, inspection personnel inspect cars and bags: those with insect pests, uneven particles and not full can never enter the factory. After entering the factory, a series of quantitative indicators such as agricultural residues were inspected to ensure the purity and pollution-free of raw grain for brewing, ensuring the quality and safety of raw materials for brewing and koji production.

After layers of screening, qualified raw grain into wine production. In the year of the original pulp of the koji workshop, high quality wheat, after fine processing into the ancient well’s long – known peach blossom spring qu; In the vintage raw liquor brewing workshop, selected raw grains such as wheat, sorghum, corn, rice and glutinous rice meet the “laojiao God mud” in the pit of Ming and Qing Dynasties. After more than 160 days of fermentation, “Grain heart” wine is brewed.
