Red Winemaking - The winemaking facilities of Rioja producer Marqués de Riscal include both steel and oak for fermentation and aging. The fermentation tanks are all small enough to ferment wines on a block-by-block basis. Note how they stand well clear of the ground to facilitate drainage by gravity.

Over the past 30 years, wine glasses have moved from regional tradition to technical shapes, with today’s emphasis clearly placed on physical and aesthetic qualities that have been engineered to suit specific styles of wine.

Citrus fruit

This is a very common taste descriptor in France, where agrume is attributed to the fresh complexity of many young white wines. It is often more complex than a specific citrus fruit aroma (one or more of limonene, citonellol, linalool).

Honey

Almost every fine white wine becomes honeyed with age, but particularly great Burgundy, classic German Riesling, and botrytised wines (phenylethylic acid).

Tomato

We tend to think of tomato as a vegetable, but it is really a fruit and, although not a common feature in wines, it is found in bottle-aged Sylvaner and, with blood-orange, in Ruby Cabernet. Also found in Merlot, Pinot Noir, and various Italian wines (trans-2-pentanal).

Viloet

Violet can often be found as part of the finesse on the finish of Cabernet-based red wines, notably Bordeaux, especially from Graves. It is possibly more tactile- based than a volatile aroma (ionones).

About the Author

Tom Stevenson has been writing about wine for more than 40 years. He has won 33 literary awards, including Wine Writer of the Year three times and The Wine Literary Award, and America’s only lifetime achievement award for wine writers. In 1998, he was the first person to publish a 17th-century document proving that the English invented sparkling Champagne six years before Dom Pérignon set foot in Hautvillers. This ensured his Christie’s World Encyclopedia of Champagne & Sparkling Wine also made history as the only wine book to warrant a leader in any UK national newspaper (The Guardian, 14 October 1998). In 2011 he was inducted into the New York Wine Media Guild’s Hall of Fame. He has written 28 books, the most important of which have been published internationally by more than 50 publishers and translated into over 25 languages. Additionally, he conceived and was the contributing editor of Wine Report. His Sotheby’s Wine Encyclopedia (now The New Sotheby’s Wine Encyclopedia) has sold over 700,000 copies worldwide.
