  • Tartaric acid it is a white crystalline organic acid. It occurs naturally in many plants, particularly grapes, bananas, and tamarinds, and is one of the main acids found in wine.

  • What Acid Is In Grapes

  • What is meant by Acidity? All wines have a certain amount of acidity. Typically, white wines have more acidity than reds. The winemaker’s task is to balance the fruit and acid. Acidity in wine is needed to give wine a lasting finish. If a wine is too low in acid, it tastes flat and dull. If a wine is too high in acid, it tastes too tart and sour. Usually, the winemaker can easily manipulate the acidity.

    The acids in wine are tartaric acid (cream of tartar) and malic acid. The amount of tartaric and malic acids vary depending on the grape variety and on where the grapes are grown. Tartaric and malic acids are produced by the grape as it develops. In warm climates, these acids are lost through a biochemical process. Therefore, grapes grown in warmer climates have lower acidity than grapes grown in cooler climates. For example, Napa Valley produces grapes with lower acidity because the climate is warmer.

    Sugar production is the complete opposite of acid production. The warmer the climate the higher the sugar content of the grapes. Sugar content of grape juice is expressed in ° Brix. In summary, warmer climates result in high sugar and low acid whereas cooler climates result in low sugar and high acid
