Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.
Sweetness
info
The alcohol level in wine is a measure of the amount of alcohol present in the beverage. The degree of heat or ‘burn’ at the back of the throat is roughly proportional to the amount of alcohol consumed. It ranges from Very Low to Very High.
Alcohol
info
Wine intensity is a measure of the concentration of flavor and aroma compounds in a wine.The stronger and more noticeable the flavors and aromas are, the higher the intensity of the wine. Intensity in wine can range from neutral (not particularly intense) to pronounced (high intensity).
Intensity
info
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
info
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.

Schloss Vollrads Riesling Spätlese is a sweet white wine from the Rheingau region of Germany. Made exclusively from Riesling grapes, this wine exhibits Riesling's hallmark vibrant acidity. The region is noted for both its cool climate and a long growing season that stretches into the fall season allowing the grapes to achieve a high level of ripeness. The winemaking is focused on preserving the fruit expression. Only the ripeest grapes are selected and their juice is fermented in neutral vessels at cold temperatures. The fermentation is stopped early by chilling to create a sweet style with the sugar elegantly balanced by the vibrant acidity. Whilst the wine is enjoyable immediately for its lush ripeness and well-defined peach and apricot fruit it will develop complex petrol notes if cellared. In addition to desserts, its sweetness makes it a good pairing for spicy dishes like chilli and garlic mussels
