March Mouthfeel Madness with Matt Ridge
Do you ever desire just a little more spice, mid-palate length, or more fruit in one of your wines before bottling? There are many tools available today for fine tuning wines. Even just before bottling, great increases in quality can be made.
The key is to know what each tool is used for, when to use the tool, and how to implement the tool. In this session we will discuss the tools available, such as QUERTANINS®, manno-protein products, and gum Arabic, and give guidelines for timing and implementation with bottling calendars.
