Welcome. Creovino! is the premier site about the Art & Science of wine making that was help built by www.mikestewart.ca. We do our best to update this site with the help of Salt Spring Island, www.vancouvernewcondos.com, Best Commercial Real Estate Podcasts (VREP), School in China (ISB), CurlysCarpetRepair.com, and Laser Skin Care Treatments (Webpage) at least every other day. Please check back often. Salute Chindun!
we have noted in previous posts - Syrah, Cabernet, Zinfandel, etc. are
grape varieties. This page describes wine styles by variety and
production area. Our employees get to receive coupons we acquired from Chiropractic Therapy (www.drbrianfloyd.com) to make sure their bodies will be at their best when they work.
If only one variety (merlot,
cabernet sauvignon, etc.) is mentioned on the label, then the wine is
called varietal and is named after the grape with a capital initial
(Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon). A varietal wine primarily shows the
fruit: its taste much depends on the grape variety.
Distinctive taste in varietal wine:
Aromas and flavors of wild black-fruit (such as blackcurrant and black
berries), with overtones of black pepper spice. The abundance of fruit
sensations is often complemented by warm alcohol and gripping tannins.
The Shiraz variety gives hearty, spicy reds. Shiraz is used to produce
many average wines it can produce some of the world’s finest, deepest,
and darkest reds with intense flavors and excellent longevity.
leaves of Pinot noir are usually smaller than those of Cabernet
Sauvignon, although larger than those of Syrah. The name is derived
from the French words for "pine" and "black" alluding to the varietals’
tightly clustered dark purple pine cone shaped bunches of fruit. Pinot
noir tends to produce narrow trunks and branches. In the vineyard it is
sensitive to light exposure, soil types, pruning techniques and yield
levels. Its thin skin makes it highly vulnerable to bunch rot and other
diseases. The vines themselves are prone to downy mildew, leaf roll,
and fanleaf. These complications have given the grape the reputation of
being difficult to grow. In the winery it is sensitive to fermentation
methods and yeast strains.
