WHAT IS A FINE WINE

It is a nebulous area to provide a definitive assessment on the quality of wine due to varied personal preferences. However, a fine wine must meet certain base objective requirements.

BALANCE

In a wine is determined by these key elements:

  • Flavor – acidity and sweetness (if present), oak (if present),
  • Tannin, and
  • Alcohol

Balance wines bear the greatest potential for cellaring. They will also mix well with food and have a smaller chance of providing fatigue to the palate.

STRUCTURE

This could be described as the “shape” of the wine or how it feels in your mouth. Wines with a good structure often have a front, mid and back palate that is well defined.

COMPLEXITY

This aspect of wine shows itself though the span of time of dinking the wine. Over an evening, the more a wine is smelled and tasted, the more its aromas can be sensed. The complexity of a wine increases with its age.

VARIETAL AND REGIONAL EXPRESSION

A wine that tastes like the grape variety it is made from distinguishes good varietal character. Regions where grapes are grown are what help express grape varieties and is commonly kwon as regional expression. However, wines often have elements that cannot be determined, which makes them special.
