Example text

The grapes that make a particular wine dictate the genetic structure of that wine and how it’ll respond to everything the winemaker does to it. Different varieties of grapes (Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, or Merlot, for example) make different wines. Grape variety refers to the fruit of a specific type of grapevine: the fruit of the Cabernet Sauvignon vine, for example, or of the Chardonnay vine. The specific grape variety (or varieties) that makes any given wine is largely responsible for the sensory characteristics the wine offers — from its appearance and aromas to its flavors and alcohol–tannin–acid profile.

Grüner Veltliner (grew-ner velt-lee-ner) A native Austrian variety that boasts complex aromas and flavors (vegetal, spicy, mineral), rich texture, and usually substantial weight. Muscat (moos-caht) An aromatic grape that makes Italy’s sparkling Asti (which, incidentally, tastes exactly like ripe Muscat grapes). It has extremely pretty floral aromas. In Alsace and Austria, Muscat makes a dry wine, and in lots of places (southern France, southern Italy, and Australia among them) it makes a delicious, sweet dessert wine through the addition of alcohol.

Many more brands, by far, fall into the first category than the second, because most winemakers do use sulfur dioxide when making their wines. But not all wines from organically grown grapes are labeled as such. Some winemakers who are deeply committed to organic farming prefer to promote and sell their wines based on the wines’ quality, not the incidental feature of their organic farming. For them, organic farming is a means to an end — better grapes, and therefore better wine — rather than a marketing tool.
