Have you ever wondered what causes cork taint, what it smells like, and how this wine fault differs from a wine that is oxidized? Would you like to be able to identify the difference between a wine with lactic taint and one spoiled by brettanomyces yeast? Have you ever wondered if it is possible to correct a wine with a nail polish remover aroma (ethyl acetate)? Join us Saturday March 7th as Steve Foisie takes you through a close examination of the more common aromatic defects found in red and white wines.
This BEWBC-sponsored work shop on wine flaws and faults offers and an opportunity to experience (smell) common aromatic wine defects in red and white wine. You learn how these defects originate, their impact on wine, and just as importantly, understand what if anything can be done to reverse the fault.
Please note that due to time constraints and the public nature of the facilities, this is not a wine tasting event. We will not be able to assess or offer chemical analysis of individual wines at this workshop.
