Topic: Discussing Reduced Wines, Then Judgement of GENCO-Part II

During the winemaking process, wines can accumulate volatile sulfur compounds. These are the compounds largely responsible for the olfactory defect known as ‘reduction.' A condition characterized of oxygen that can also have a detrimental effect on wine development and quality. The nose of a wine that is reduced is unpleasant - smelling of anything from burning rubber to off-cabbage. Tonight's discussion will add to your the winemaking knowledge base by understanding what is happening to your wine, recognizing the aromas and knowing what to do if you believe your wine is reduced.
