In a clear Chardonnay, you can see forever

Published May 11, 2020

Have you been fret­ting about your white wine turn­ing cloudy? Of course you have. Fear not: Researchers at the University of South Australia have found a way to use mag­net­ic nan­otech­nol­o­gy to clear your glass.

The new tech­nol­o­gy uses mag­net­ic nanopar­ti­cles coat­ed with acrylic acid poly­mers which, when placed in heat-unsta­ble wine, attract and bind pro­teins to the nanopar­ti­cles’ sur­faces. The par­ti­cles are then drawn from the wine using a mag­net, leav­ing behind a clar­i­fied prod­uct devoid of haze.

Perish the thought you might have to drink the one on the left.
