Grapes, Wine and their Flavor Prophiles

As you may know, the same grape that is used to produce a wine can taste drastically different depending on how, when and even where that wine was produced. There are many factors that can determine the flavor profile of a wine:

  • Old World or New World
  • Oaked or unoaked
  • Cool climate or warm climate
  • Residual sugar or not
  • Hang time short to long
  • Fortified or not
  • Soil Type
  • Fermentation process

In the future I will be posting specific varietals (the grape) and their flavor profiles.
