What is a wine fault?

May 07, 2024 - 1 comments

What is a wine fault? In recent weeks we’ve discussed wine faults like Mouse, Volatile Acidity, Brettanomyces and more. But, where do we draw the line between a wine fault and an enhancement?

Natural wine is redefining the world of wine and challenging long-held preconceptions about the flavors that can be crafted from the humble grape. Can we justifiably label something a fault if we dislike its taste, even if others might enjoy it?

The term 'fault' is frequently used to critique natural wine for not conforming to conventional expectations. However, when a natural winemaker pushes boundaries, should this really be considered a fault, or is it an innovative exploration of what wine can be?

Which wine have you tasted that changed a flaw to a feature?

J’adore l’acidité volatil par exemple. Puis je n’aime pas le sucre résiduel, La souris ou exudación ne me dérange pas autant qu’avant. Un vin qui bouge et vivant et pour moi ce n’est pas un défaut.
