Question: Accidentally froze a bottle of wine, now it has a white powdery substance in it!?
I accidentally froze a bottle of wine, and now it has defrosted there is a white powder in it that looks like sugar or salt!. What is it!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

These people are all insane for not having a clue what they are saying especially the frozen cork and the "How do you not know you froze it" person!. I have done this a million times!. All this is is called tartrates!. These are crystals that form when a wine becomes very cold and then warms!. They are harmless but do indicate a poor wine (when present at purchase) because great care is taken to remove or prevent them!. I could bore you with EXACTLY what they are but all you really need to know is that your wine will be fine!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

The white powder is cream of tartar that was suspended before freezing!. That's a natural ingredient in grapes and wine, is used in baking as a powder and will not harm you!.


are you sure you didn't sleepwalk in the middle of the night and put some crack in there!? if not, i'm not sure what it is!. :PWww@FoodAQ@Com

The wine seemed to be corked prior to frozen, this is where the cork has degraded before bottling and a bug enzyme has deteriorated it!.

I'd be reluctand to drink itWww@FoodAQ@Com

how do you accidentally freeze something
you either put it in the freezer, or you don't!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

cream of tartar is just tartaric acid that has precipitated out of the wine and in most cases will improve the wine!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

"sounds like the pure alcohol , separate it and throw the wine away , you'll get pissed faster "Www@FoodAQ@Com

Please tell me you're not going to drink that!?Are you!?Www@FoodAQ@Com
