When assessing wine quality an extensive amount of analysis is required. This can include a range of metals analysis, as well as nutritional elements, alcohol levels and congeners.

The Fapas wine proficiency tests have now been re-structured to better comply with different laboratory testing capabilities.  This proficiency test, set 2 analytes, presents the secondary wine quality indicators that wine testing laboratories will be expected to analyse.  This set of parameters will apply to some of the large-scale wineries, third-party testing laboratories or major wine testing laboratories including official control laboratories and reference laboratories.

This set of analytes is provided in combination with the set 1 list of analytes, product code FCOH6-DRA13.

The continued consumption of wine across the globe has resulted in fierce competition between wine producers, with quality continuing to be a deciding factor of economic success. As a result, your testing ability across quality indicators provides valuable data for your customers when meeting their key strategic objectives.
