The letter “B” in wine

Some wine words with “B”:

  • BODY:The overall mouth feel or weight of a wine. Some tasters incorrectly attribute it to glycerin or glycol in wine (there is not enough in wine to make wine thick). The term may be related to the amount of dry extract in a wine (what is left when you remove the water).
  • BOUQUET: Bouquet Used generically to indicate how a wine smells, or more specifically to indicate aromas associated with bottle aging. A more technical term for this later definition is “tertiary aromas.”

The letter “A” in wine

Some wine words with “A”:

  • AFTERTASTE: Term used to describe the taste left in the mouth after swallowing the wine. Both character and length of the aftertaste are part of the total evaluation. May beharsh, hot, soft and lingering, short, smooth, tannic, or nonexistent.
  • ALCOHOL: There are many different compounds that may be described as ‘alcohol’. Here we are referring to ethyl alcohol, the product of alcoholic fermentation of sugar by yeast. It’s presence is measured in percent volume (or “proof”).
  • AROMA: aroma wine in SensawineThe intensity and character of the aroma can be assessed with nearly any descriptive adjective. (eg: from “appley” to “raisiny”, “fresh” to “tired”, etc.).

Fine Wines in Bag in Box

I think Bag in Box wines have a bad reputation but It’s time to reconsider box wine. Screw caps and other packakings had a bad reputation too because the market associated them with low quality until fine wines appeared under these ways and we began to appreciate many advantages on it. Now these new packagings are associated with quality for some types of wine, especially youthful whites, and no one expects to pay less or get less because of it.

The increase of bag in box wine is part of the trading down effect, clearly, since most box wines fall into the two price categories that are experiencing the highest growth. Sales of wines that are less than $3 per 750ml bottle equivalent have risen 7.1 percent and by 10% for wines between $3 and  $5.99. Supermarket sales of $20+ wines, on the other hand, have fallen by 3.4%.

Wine Spectator purchased 39 box wines in packages that ranged from 1 liter to 5 liters. Twenty seven wines were rated as “good” (a score of 80-84) and ten “very good” (85-89).

The top box wine, going by the rating numbers, is a white: A Chardonnay, which sells in Target Stores for $17 per 3 liter box, which is $4.25 per standard bottle equivalent. It earned a very respectable 88 points.

Some box wine is good and cheap. Wine Spectator gave the top score on this tasting to a wine from California. Five liters for $13, in case you are interested,  That’s $1.97 per standard bottle equivalent.

How can decent wine be this cheap? you can choose to make the wine itself less expensive by reducing the costs in the cellar in different ways. But to a considerable degree the box itself is responsible for the savings.

Transport costs are also smaller since the weigh of the boxes is much less than glass bottles for the same quantity of wine and are less likely to be damaged during transport.

There are environment benefits also, especially in areas where glass bottle recycling is problematic.

What is bag in box?

In packaging, a bag-in-box or BiB is a type of container for the storage and transportation of liquids. It consists of a strong bladder (or plastic bag), usually made of several layers of metallised film or other plastics, seated inside a corrugated fiberboard box. The bag is supplied to the ‘filler’ as an empty pre made bag. The ‘filler’ then generally removes the tap, fills the bag and replaces the tap. The bags are available as singles for semi-automatic machines or as web bags, where the bags have perforations between each one. These are used on automated filling systems where the bag is separated on line either before the bag is automatically filled or after.

Sensawine use this packaging, we want to offer our best wines in the best packaging.

Verdejo

Verdejo is a variety of wine grape that has long been grown in Spain. The grape originated in North Africa, and was spread to Spain in about the 11th Century, possibly by Mozarabs. Verdejo was generally used to make a strongly oxidized, Sherry-like wine.

The Verdejo grapes are generally hasvested at night. This means that the grapes enter the cellar at the lower night-time temperature of between 10-15 C instead of the daytime temperature which in September can reach as high as 28 or 30 C. Lower temperatures means less oxidation, or browning of the juice. Verdejo wines are aromatic, often soft and full-bodied.

Tempranillo

Tempranillo is a variety of black grape widely grown to make full-bodied red wines in its native Spain. Its name is the diminutive of the Spanish temprano (“early”), a reference to the fact that it ripens several weeks earlier than most Spanish red grapes. In the last 100 years it has been planted in another countries.

 

 

Tempranillo wines can be consumed young, but the most expensive ones are aged for several years in oak barrels. The wines are ruby red in colour, with aromas and flavors of berries, plum, tobacco, vanilla, leather and herb.
