Soapy Taste In Wine
Carlos Cardoso — Via email asks,
I came across your site while searching for answers about soapy taste in white wine. I have been making white and red wines for a while and I never had this issue. When I went to rack the white wine for the first time I noticed that it still had sugar residue, so I added yeast nutrients, which got the wine going again. Now when I taste the wine a few weeks later I’m getting the soapy taste. The pH is 3.76.
