Sedimentation

Designation (also settling, settling) for the deposition of particles from liquids or gases under the influence of gravity or centrifugal force. In winemaking, this is understood to mean the automatic degumming. Sediment is sometimes also used as a term for the deposit (sediment) in a wine bottle. See also under Schönen.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
