Tartaric Crystals in Wine: the 'Wine Diamonds'

By: Liz :: Wednesday Jul 7, 2009

Have you ever come across what appear to be white flakes floating in your bottle of wine? Did you assume that the wine was flawed or ruined?

What you have seen are tartaric crystals, commonly referred to as "wine diamonds" or Weinstein (wine stone) in German  speaking countries.  So do these wine diamonds signal a bad bottle of wine?

To find out  more about wine diamonds google 'wine diamonds'

 LOTUSLAND'S Girlsrmeaner has wine diamonds in the bottle. We say: "Our girls come with diamonds, and diamonds are a girls best friend"

Cheers
