The letter “C” in wine

Some wine words with “C”:

  • COMPLETE: A satisfyin and mature quality of wine with a solid finish.
  • CITRIC ACID:One of the three predominate acids in wine.

    All the wines elaborated by Bodegas Celaya are clean and complete.

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.”
  • BAG IN BOX:

Wine Color

red and white wineThe color of wine is one of the most easily recognizable characteristics of wines. Color is also an element in wine tasting since heavy wines generally have a deeper color. The accessorytraditionally used to judge the wine color was the tastevin, a shallow cup allowing to see the color of the liquid in the dim light of a cellar. The color is an element in the classification.

The color of the wine mainly depends on the color of the drupe of the grape variety. 

What do your prefer, red, white or rosé?

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.). Usually refers to the particular smell of the grape variety. The word “bouquet” is usually restricted to describing the aroma of a cellar-aged bottled wine.
In bag in box Sensawine you can taste the fresh aroma from the grape variety due to good preservation of aromas in this packaging.

 

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 makes red wine good for your heart?

A new study provides some insight into whether—for red wine, at least—the benefits stem from the grapes or the alcohol.

older people drinking wineResearchers at the University of Barcelona in Spain conducted a study on 67 men with a high risk of heart disease—as indicated by a higher body mass index (BMI), smoking, diabetes or high blood pressure. After two weeks of abstaining from alcohol, the men went through three four-week stages: drinking two glasses of red wine a day; drinking two glasses of red wine (with the alcohol removed) a day; and drinking the same amount of gin (by alcohol content) a day.

The study found that drinking alcohol—in either red wine or gin—increased the level of a compound in the blood that controls inflammation. Drinking red wine—with or without alcohol—decreased the level of compounds related to the formation of plaques in the arteries. Both inflammation and plaque formation are related to heart disease.

Thus, both grapes and alcohol are good for the heart.

The key, though, is drinking in moderation—up to two drinks a day for men, and one for women.

How many wine do you drink a day? Red or white?
