Tartaric acid.

Naturally occurring acid found in grapes (and almost nowhere else) and the most important acid in wine.

A good level of acidity is essential for balance, the refreshing taste of crisp whites, and ageing potential in all wines. In hot regions, extra tartaric acid is added to ‘correct’ the acidity.
