A mixture of 11% ethanol, 88% water and 1% natural colourings and
flavourings (or thereabouts) is not the ideal cleaner for electronic
equipment :-)

It's unlikely that corroded contacts around the RAM would explain a
sudden change of CPU clock rate.  That suggests the wine got under
some surface mount components and wasn't washed out thoroughly enough.

Contact cleaner may help, but if there is actually corrosion, you
probably need to mechanically scrub the corrosion off as well (eg with
a soft toothbrush).

Good luck.
