Why test for Potassium in wine?

Potassium is a critical factor in acid salt formation and tartrate precipitation. Excessive potassium levels contribute to higher pH measurements in wine and potentially tartrate instability problems. Testing for the optimised potassium concentration is vital to ensure product quality and taste.
