Wine is obtained by natural or artificial grape fermentation allowing the sugar from the grape to transform into alcohol. The grape can have a black skin or a white (yellowish) skin but the juice is always white! Did you know it? If you drink a red or a rosé it means that the juice has spent some time in contact with the skin of the grape. The skin has many other particularities that it gives to the final wine : it will also give the consistency of the wine (mainly in reds) and its aromas. You bet skins are important!

Of course it is not the only answer to why a wine tastes the way it does : production method, region where the grape was cultivated, techinques used by the wine maker, the oenologue, the producer, the weather, the climate, the grapes used, the orientation of the vineyard, the soil, etc etc all of this that is commonly called the "Terroir" will give the specificity to the wine you will taste in a Wine&Spirit Lodging estate tomorrow. So ready to make your taste buds work?
