Rejected Wine ‘Auctioned’ in New Zealand Supermarkets

The following excerpts are from a news article in Sunday Star Times:

Rejected wine going cheap

“A New Zealand wine rejected by European buyers because of its high metal content is being sold at knock-down prices in New World and Pak’n Save supermarkets.

“Last year, Martinborough-based Te Kairanga winery had a 4000-case shipment of its 2006 pinot noir returned after its German buyer discovered the wine’s copper content exceeded European standards.

“Copper sulphate or copper citrate is often added to wine to eliminate sulphurous odours produced during fermentation, but in this instance too much was added.” Source
