In wine these complexes are modified or absent and so the salt crystallizes out over time, forming crusts on the bottom of the bottle. To avoid this problem, winemakers usually chill the wine to a temperature of 22 to 24 C and add finely ground potassium bitartrate crystals as a nucleating agent. For this reason, you cannot expect to recover all the tartrates if you freeze samples before carrying out analyses—if frozen they must be heated to redissolve the salts.
