in the winemaking
arise. However, it is necessary to distinguish between expressly desired reductive notes and incorrect notes resulting from inadequate or incorrect wine making. White wines and sparkling wines are usually reductively
expanded to splashy

Unwanted reduction flavors can result in improper winemaking at the fermentation
or by uncontrolled or over-emphasized reductive expansion

and dirty wine making. The causative substances are various substances such as Lactic acid bacteria

Called (mercaptans). These in turn cause wine defects, among others sulfurous off
or horse sweat

" designated. The term is thus to be understood as a collective term for various false tones. Reduction aromas often occur in young wines. At best, they can get through relatively quickly decanting
, or by "standing briefly after Glaseinschenken (venting)" are eliminated.
