What is Acid Blend?

A little acidity goes a long way – the magic of acid blend in wine making

What is Acid Blend in Wine Making?

Acid blend is used to improve the quality of a wine by balancing the acidity. In addition, wines with higher acidity are better suited for long-term aging. Balancing the acids in wine is often the difference between good wine and a great one. Acid blend is a powder made from the most common fruit acids: malic acid, citric acid, and tartaric acid. When needed, acid blend is added directly to wine to raise its acid level. Wines that are low in acid tend to taste flat, while wines with too much acidity are tart or sour. When done right, a balanced wine will fall between these two and result in a bright, crisp, smooth, well-rounded wine.
