Graphical Abstract:
 In young wines potassium hydrogen tartrate is always present in supersaturating concentration and crystallizes spontaneously. The aim of this study is to obtain kinetic parameters, which explain the stability of young wines during the stabilization treatments. The kinetic and equilibrium parameters were evaluated and discussed. According to the obtained experimental results, the optimal regime for production and stabilization of young wines has been established.
