Interesting article cmason, I wondered what had happened to Ascorbic acid as it was used in most white kits back in the 80s and 90s as an antioxidant.

Good read, cmason. I guess it's optional for white wines. Seems not to be beneficial for the reds. I've been adding this to my reds for the past ten years, as per Mosti Mondiale's older instruction sheet. This year I'm leaving it out to see what difference it makes, if any.
