Reliable test data paves the way for quality wine. BDAS has TTB certified chemists for wine export testing. Our clients look to us for our advanced analytical services.
Wine is a vibrant alcoholic beverage that is expected to be unadulterated, safe, and consistent. Wine is a blend of many compounds including water, sugar, organic acids, various ions, glycerol, ethanol along with other aliphatic and aromatic alcohols, proteins, polyphenols, and tannins; all of which contribute uniquely to color, aroma, and flavor. Modern winemaking uses a combination of production methods to optimize processes and ensure each of these components are there in the finished product.
Winemaking is a delicate process. The composition of grape juice and the “must”, as well as unexpected changes during fermentation, clarification, racking, or aging, can quickly de-rail the development of a wine. Time is of the essence when creating premium wines. That’s why wineries have relocated several aspects of quality control to laboratories like BDAS for analytical wine testing.
