Ask Sid: How do I identify the different acids in wine?

Question: What can I do to help me identify the different acids that are found in wine?

Answer: Practice and experience. A useful rough guide I suggest to get there is to be become familiar with the smell and taste of the following items:

Apple Juice – Malic Acid

Lemon Juice – Citric Acid

Vinegar – Acetic Acid

Bubbly Beverages – Carbonic Acid

Yogurt – Lactic Acid

Cream of Tartar in Water – Tartaric Acid

Hope this helps you.
