Our oenologists' opinion
Its deep amber color introduces a smoked, saline and peaty nose. The palate is bold, big and fresh with a tight grain and a mellow finish on smoky notes. A success.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?
As wines, whisky can be elaborated with a broad range of different ingredients. We talk about “single malt” when it is fully made of barley, and “blend” when comprised of both grains and malts.
