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

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.

Outlot Chardonnay is a white wine from California. It is made with fruit primarily sourced from the Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys. What makes this wine unique is the inclusion of 10% of the aromatic variety Gewurztraminer to add aromatic richness to the mainstay of Chardonnay. This adds extra richness to the mid-palate granting it an oily texture and additional exotic tropical fruit notes to the nose. Oak maturation add toasty notes of butterscotch to the finish. The end result is a wine with opulent fruit and texture without being overly reliant upon oak and posessing a fine sense of balance for something so rich. Drinkers of Californian Chardonnay should try this wine at least once.
