After the fermentation stage is complete during the winemaking process, the quality and taste is then evaluated to determine the destination for the wine. Common situations for wine to be categorised as include fresh and easy-to-drink wine, wine for long term ageing, oak-aged wine for early release and wine with faults. Each of these situations will come with its own challenges and solutions. For example, wine that is fresh and easy-to-drink will preserve freshness and keep consistent quality until the final bottling. Using tannins will help to maintain a low redox potential.
