As mentioned, the biggest issue is usually a wine that is too sour and this is most likely down to an acid level that is far too high. This is far more common than having a PH level that is too low.
There is no official art or process behind making a winner wine, indeed, the premier manufacturers of great wine have been doing so for generations and the secrets will have been passed down and fiercely guarded. However, we do know that it requires the meticulous checking of PH levels, alongside things such as sugar (Brix levels), TA (total acidity) and VA (volatile acidity).
If you are a seasoned winemaker then you will be fully aware of just what these are and if not, we strongly recommend you look into these as you embark on the exciting journey of becoming a champion wine producer. Eventually, you may well know when the PH levels of your wine are right from looking at things such as colour and texture.
