Features

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 ?

South-African grape variety, the pinotage was created in 1925 by Abraham Izak Perold by blending cinsault with pinot noir. Produced at 95% in South Africa, this grape variety is definitively the country’s signature but can also be found in New-Zealand, U.S., Zimbabwe, Brazil, Canada and Israël.
