Testing for residual sugars

This week we’re testing the residual sugar in our red and late harvest wines. Residual sugar is a what’s left after the fermentation process, leaving wine with a naturally sweeter taste.
 
In the winery we use the Rebelein method – where we titrate a wine sample against a water reference, which reveals the grams of sugar remaining.
