How many of you have heard of the term “sediment” in a wine? Sediment usually occurs in older wines through time and it’s when tannins settle at the bottom of the bottle and crystalize. This is why most decanters come with a small screen filter. By the way, a wine with sediment, does not mean a wine is a bad one.
