Sterile filtration involves filtration of wine with a tight enough membrane to capture yeasts and bacteria. This is increasingly specified by customers in many export markets and is often deemed necessary in wines that contain either residual sugars (glucose or fructose) or malic acid, which are common food sources for yeasts and bacteria.
