These fruity notes are complemented by subtle white flower note, adding depth and complexity to the overall profile. The palate is greeted with a well-balanced combination of flavors. The tropical fruit flavors persist, accompanied by a touch of vanilla and a creamy texture. The wine's acidity provides a refreshing zing, while the medium body adds a satisfying weight to the mouthfeel. Read more

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.
