Complexity and Depth: The use of whole wheat introduces additional layers of complexity to the wine, enhancing the overall sensory experience and contributing to a fuller body perception.

Balancing Act: Winemakers must carefully balance the incorporation of whole wheat to avoid overpowering other flavors, ensuring a harmonious integration for a well-rounded and balanced wine.

Continue Fermentation:

Allow the wine to continue fermentation until it reaches the desired level of dryness or sweetness.
