Dosage

Expression for the grape must used for sweetening a wine. It also means the grape must/ sugar dissolved in wine, that is mixed with yeast and added to the base wine in the production of sparkling wine. Here, a distinction is made between the filling dosage for the initiation of the second fermentation and the shipping dosage which is added to the fermented sparkling wine in order to round it off and to compensate for the loss of sweetness caused by the second fermentation. The shipping dosage characterizes the flavour type of sparkling wine.
