Reply to "1997 Siro Pacenti Sulfur Odor"

Don't want to get into a chemistry lesson but there are methyl mercaptans, di-methyl and tri-methyl mercaptans (if you have ever driven by a paper mill those are the smells you get). Most mercaptans aren't eye irritants. SO2 combines with the water in your eyes creating a weak acid which is why you have the burning sensation. I guess I was really wondering if too much SO2 or sulfite was added in the winery when the Siro Pacenti was bottled.
