Did you enjoy yesterday story about wine? ?
No seriously, put the glass down. Would you like some more wine…facts…that is?
Well, here is the vintage for you and some extra “cool” facts about wine.
Did you know that temperature influences the flavour of wine!
Temperature affects the sugar-acid balance of grapes, thus the cooler an area is, the higher the acidity giving the wine improved balance.
In comparison, warmer regions lead to higher baume (that is the scale of how dense the wine is) and higher alcohol content.
Grapes grown in warmer regions ripen faster and are sweeter in flavour.
Have you noticed this when tasting wine?
