Wine Faults and Flaws: A Practical Guide

• Why might a wine smell of Elastoplast?
• Is mustiness always caused by cork?
• Is a 'reduced' wine treatable?

There are some faults that render wines unsaleable and undrinkable and others that have a negative
effect upon quality and enjoyment. This book provides a detailed examination and explanation of
the causes and impact of the faults, flaws and taints that may affect wine. The discussion of each
fault generally includes: what it is, in basic terms; how it can be detected by sensory recognition and
laboratory analysis; what the cause is; how it might be prevented; whether an affected wine is
treatable (and if so how); and the science applicable to the fault.

This book will prove invaluable to winemakers, wine technologists and quality control professionals.
Wine critics, writers, educators and sommeliers will also find the topics highly relevant. The wine-
loving consumer, including wine collectors, will also find the book a great resource and the basis for
discussion at tastings with like-minded associates.

Available in hardback and as an e-book.
