Prof Rainer Jung of Geisenheim on oxidation and PET bottles
This show was published 27 January 2012
Professor Rainer Jung of the Geisenheim research institute has researched oxidation in wine and explains to us how oxygen gets into the wine during the wine making process, e.g. during and after fermentation and when the wine is being transported into filling machines. We also talk about the reasons for using PET packaging for wine when normal PET can really only protect wine for 3 to 6 months and even multi-layer PET, while offering better more protection against oxidation, will only keep wine fresh for 12-24 months.
The UK Wine Show is sponsored by ThirtyFifty. Our team of wine tasters are busy entertaining and educating UK consumers to help them get the most out of wine.
The music used for the UK Wine Show is Griffes de Jingle 1 by Marcel de la Jartèle and Silence by Etoile Noire.
