Sediment

Definition: Sediment


Sediment
Commonly found in older bottles of red wine, the deposit or residue that can accumulate in the bottle during the aging process. The solid matter can be from yeasts, fragments of grape skins and pulp, or it can form naturally. Sediments are not considered a negative quality, and can sometimes be associated with finer red wines. Sediment should be allowed to settle completely and can be separated from a well aged wine by decanting.

What doesn't count as sediment is when the waiter brings your glass of wine and there's cork floating in it, and when you ask for a new glass, he blatantly takes it over to the bar (in your eyeline!), scoops out the cork bits and brings it back.This seriously happened to me this weekend. I was beyond annoyed.
