Lars Verspohl proposes a method for determining wine quality that incorporates a mathematical model that records the pattern of physiochemical property composition in connection to wine ratings.

And according to the model, quality wine has higher alcohol content, less volatile acidity, and a higher sulphate level. Read full article here
