Our oenologists' opinion
On the nose, we find the characteristics of American IPAs with very hoppy scents that bring us to fruity aromas of grapefruit and peach.
On the palate, there are flavors of floral hops with hints of fruit and pine needles, followed by some lighter undertones of caramel. The finish is obviously marked by a typical pleasant bitterness.
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.
