Description

This two-page fact sheet explains why not to use any chlorinated products anywhere in the winery. That's because chlorine, even at very minute levels, is one of the two major contributors to the production of 2,4,6-trichloroanisole, the compound known as TCA that causes wine to have a moldy, musty-cork taint.
