What is acidity in wine? Uvamatris Answers to this question…
Acids are one of 4 fundamental traits in wine (the others are tannin, alcohol and sweetness). Acidity gives wine its tart and sour taste. All wines lie on the acidic side of the pH spectrum and most range from 2.5 to about 4.5 pH (7 is neutral). There are several different types of acids found in wine which will affect how acidic a wine tastes. The most prevalent acids found in wine are tartaric acid, malic acid, and citric acid. Acidity is an essential trait in wine that’s necessary for quality. As wines age, the acidity acts as a buffer to preserve the wine longer.
