- Keeping level Ready to drink
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 ?
Lagavulin is celebrated for its pear shaped stills that give the whiskey its powerful and smooth texture. By allowing the heavy aromas to resist distillation, they promote the amplitude of peaty and smokey flavours, while revealing notes of licorice roots and vegetables. The discrete and enveloping woodiness of Lagavulin brings it an uncommon balsamic side.
