Wine under the microscope - a collection of different wine sorts
this is a small collection of wine under the microscope (magnification 200 times and polarized light). The wine is frozen on a microscope slide and the formation of the ice crystals is controlled by wine compounds like suspended solids, tartaric acid or the alcohol contend. They produce different nucleation conditions for the crystallization of ice crystals and give every wine sort a special look. The ice crystals are a result of a complex interaction among the process of freezing and the wine compound reactions. It's a after party experiment whit a high number of almost empty wine bottles.
