Claus Patz from Geisenheim on analysing wine
This show was published 23 March 2012
Dr Claus Patz is a food scientist at the Geisenheim Grape Breeding Institute. In this interview he explains how wines are analysed to measure the density of wine, the sugar, acidity, acids and alcohol, among others. The wines are measured throughout the process, pre and post fermentation, and sometimes these measurements are used for making declarations on German wine labels. We hear about the various techniques and tests used in the analysis.
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.
