A Greek study claims that a Cretan wine had a discernable difference in taste comparing samples stored in bag-in- box (BIB), and glass bottles. An expert tasting panel examined Vilana, the main Cretan variety of white wine and found that samples stored in glass, were of acceptable quality up to six months, whilst those contained in BIB packaging were reduced to three months. In a parallel scientific analysis titratable acidity rose for BIB, and total free SO2 levels fell by 40%, compared to 28% for those stored in glass. The study highlighted the capacity of BIB materials to absorb favourable but volatile flavour compounds, and concerns over the airtightness of valves. http://www.beveragedaily.com/Processing-Packaging/Bog-Standard-bag-in-box!-Greek-wine-spoils-more-quickly-than-in-glass
