Why test for Copper in wine?

Instability in the wine, which is initially manifested as a white haze (white wines) and later as a reddish-brow precipitate, could result from storage of bottled wine containing levels of copper above 0.5 mg/L. Unless exposed to significant airborne pollution or vineyard sprays, increased concentrations in wine result from contamination during post fermentation processing. It is important to measure copper levels as excessive levels are toxic.
