A winemaker will sometimes choose not to filter a particular wine if he or she feels that filtering will detract from its character or complexity. Though filtering is one of the fastest and easiest ways to clarify and stabilize a wine, some winemakers claim that it strips wine of its aroma and flavor. In the New World, if a wine is unfiltered it usually says so somewhere on the label. An aside, even though a wine may not be filtered, it could have been clarified via a process called fining. If neither method was used, the label will probably say "unfiltered and unfined."
