What’s that at the bottom of my glass?

the high road tartrates

Almost all red wines that are found in the middle price range and down are put through a -3°C cold chilling process for tartrate crystals to be made stable and then sterile filtered.

In the top end price range, red wines that are kept for at least a year in barrels, this process is not done as most of the tartrate crystals precipitate out over the winter period and can be seen against the side of the barrel.
