Intensity

Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity

Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

The Esprit de Tablas from Tablas Creek Vineyard represents their flagship red blend, meticulously crafted from the finest lots of six estate-grown grape varieties originating from budwood cuttings sourced from the Château de Beaucastel estate. This wine revolves around the rich, dark red fruit, earthy nuances, spice, and mid-palate depth of Mourvèdre. It includes Grenache for its upfront fruitiness, approachability, and lushness, Syrah for its mineral characteristics, aromatic complexity, and back-palate tannins, and Counoise for its contribution of brambly spice and acidity. In addition, two new grapes, the dark and herbaceous Vaccarese and the juicy, spicy Cinsaut, make their inaugural appearance in Esprit, enhancing the blend's depth and balance.
