    What is the process called in winemaking, when harsh/tart acids turn to softer acids?

    • A.

      Malolactic fermentation

    • B.

      Pumping over

    • C.

      Carbonic maceration

    Correct Answer
    A. Malolactic fermentation
    Explanation
    Malolactic fermentation is the process in winemaking when harsh/tart acids, such as malic acid, are converted into softer acids, such as lactic acid. This process helps to reduce the acidity of the wine and create a smoother, more rounded flavor profile. It is often used in the production of red wines, as well as some white wines, to improve their taste and mouthfeel. Pumping over and carbonic maceration are different techniques used in winemaking but do not specifically involve the conversion of acids.
