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:
One of the best packaging to conserve the wine. Some wineries offers in this “box” a very good quality wines, Sensawine offer to you the best wine in the best packaging, discover it.
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:The 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.
A new study provides some insight into whether—for red wine, at least—the benefits stem from the grapes or the alcohol.
Researchers 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.
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.
