Spanish term or phrase: maloláctica
fermentación maloláctica (vines-wine growing)
keith
English translation:malolactic
Explanation:
Hola, no surprises here and nothing to do with mala leche. For reference, link 1: "SANTA MARGHERITA - Dictionary - Malolactic fermentation is a natural process due to the action of certain bacteria which change malic acid (which has a much stronger taste) into lactic acid which is much less aggressive. Malolactic fermentation starts after the alcoholic fermentation, in some cases immediately afterwards, sometimes in the spring or at the beginning of the summer after the grape harvest. It is the temperature of the wine, whether natural or controlled, which sets off this fermentation, but a great deal depends on the initial acidity of the grapes". No está maloláctica la explicación...Cheers :-)
