The other day we posted our Acid Chart for white wines. Here is the corresponding one for red wines. Open for comments.
Any chance of adding a couple more signature grapes to this chart: Xynomavro, Carmenere, Pinotage, Zweigelt?
Very helpful. Are these perceived acidities, or measured TA, or something else? Thanks in advance!
We looked at both perceived acidity as well as pH. One could certainly argue the advantages of TA versus pH but with a granularity of four levels we found that we could agree on ranges by looking at perceived acidity with a gut check from typical pH and possible acidification levels.
Geoff, I'm having trouble finding the White Wine Acid Chart. Do you have a link?

Geoff: Thanks again for all these wonderful guides, both the acid guides and the awesome sweetness chart you posted, too. Very helpful with these classical wines.
Cara, white wine acid chart link is not working :(
www.guildsomm.com/.../5280.aspx try this. Either way it's only a page or two back.
