Ingredient Labelling

Wine analysis – labelling law

Regarding about labelling law, the term ‘contains sulphites’ is required on the label if it contains more than 10 mg/L of SO2 in US. Besides, the analysis of residual sugar is important for sweetness declaration such as medium-dry or halbtrocken on the label. Dr. Loosen in Mosel invested in OenoFoss for the in-house sweetness testing. Alcohol is another concern. According to EU there is +- 0.5% tolerance on label. Additionally, this is important for taxation in terms of the different tax regimes in different countries. For example, the duty rate of alcohol in UK between 5.6% and 15% is Gbp 273/hl.
