750Daily: Reductive Notes in Natural Wines

by TomHill » Wed Jan 30, 2019 6:29 pm

Interesting article, as linked in WineTerroirist, on 750Daily:
750Daily:Reductive Notes
on why low-sulfur/no-sulfur "natural" wines can oft develop reductive notes.
Part of the article seems to admonish lovers of "natural" wines to "suck it up and live with it".
Valette wrote:if you’re looking for wines that are more “alive,” you must accept the variability and the occasional reductive note as things that simply come with the territory.

Another interesting aspect of the article is that some/many of the "natural" winemaker will sterile filter rather than use added SO2 to insure shelf stability. Must be shocking to SweetAlice to hear they're monkeying around with her "natural" wines.
