Wine, The Rebirth of a New Cool
The production of wine is not new. Studies show that grapes have been fermented and kept in vessels for as long as 8,000 or more years. Ancient civilizations made wine much like modern vineyards do today, but with much less science. Fast-forward thousands of years until wine and wine culture migrated from Europe and settled in the Western world. Wine found its new home. But how much do you know about it?
Smells Are Free
The saying “aged like a fine wine” is more relevant today than ever. Wine can be as finicky as people, and similarly, age matures wine too. The older the wine, the more confident it is in its flavor. The more flavorful the wine is, the greater the aroma. Wine aficionados can be seen from coast to coast spinning the bottom of a glass swirling their wine in circles, essentially “opening the nose” of their wine. By doing this, wines are unlocked, giving those who imbibe a myriad of flavors in each sip, from the terra firma where the grapevines once grew, to the flowers growing alongside the vineyards. These aromas also have a profound affect on taste.
Taste It, Don’t Waste It
Fruit lovers know how unique grapes can be in color and taste. This influences the taste of a fine wine in the same way. Whether inspired by the original properties of the grape, or the flowers and herbs around it, wine adopts so many scents and flavors that it makes each sip potentially different as it unlocks yet more flavor categories. Mixing flavor influencers makes for exciting growing and drinking. With a seemingly limitless flavor palette, wine tastings can be different each time.
