Acidity

All grapes naturally contain acids which are an essential component in wine. Acidity levels should have proper balance with fruit and other components. Sufficient acidity gives liveliness, structure, lingering aftertaste, crispness and is critical for wines to properly mature. High levels of acidity will make the wines taste sour, sharp or tart. Low level will make the wine dull, flat and lacking backbone.
