Once bottling is completed our laboratory staff will conduct the relevant post bottling analysis of your wine, enter the results on your original Bottling Authorisation and send the results back to you.
Tests performed on post bottling samples include:
- Free and Total Sulphur
We also analyse the last bottle to ensure that alcohol, CO2 and Dissolved Oxygen are within specifications.
If your wine has been sterile filled, we also undertake Microbial analysis to ensure that any active yeast has been removed during the bottling filtration process. This process takes 72 hours after which time we will check the sample plates to ensure they are clear of any yeast growth and then release the wine for distribution.
