Yes wine lovers, it’s that time again. This quarter’s Wine Lovers Subscription Box has landed. It’s the third out of four boxes we send out per year, and true to our nature, it’s a not so little box of happiness to help you get through lockdown and social distancing funk..

This box takes you to the rolling hills of the Veneto wine region in north-east of Italy to bring you two aromatic wines from winemakers Stefano Chioccioli and Mattia Giacomelli, who ferment their wine in temperature controlled tanks in order for the wine to develop its typical fruity aromas.

8 words that’ll make you a wine expert instantly.

https://wineloversbox.co.uk - The 8 words that’ll make you a wine expert instantly.

Becoming a wine expert takes time, ask sommeliers, it’s no joke. You have to read, study, and practice wine service as well as identify wines by tasting them blindly.

But if you’ve been drinking wine for years and know you can do all of the above while holding your own against the so-called wine experts with professional training; then all you need are these commonly used wine phrases that’ll instantly have you talking like the wine expert you are.

Legs

Legs are the rivulets that run down the side of a wine glass after the wine has been swirled around. The more legs you see, the more full-bodied and alcoholic the wine is.

Tight

A tight wine is a wine without much flavour, meaning, it needs to unwind and develop further.

Reductive

This refers to wine that is kept air-tight during fermentation. The lack of oxygen often creates a sulphurous smell in the wine.

Oxidized

When a wine is oxidized, it means it’s stale and flat due to overexposure to air.

Bouquet

This is the characteristic smell of a matured wine. Bouquet takes a long time to develop, which is why mature wines have complex bouquets.

Terroir

This is a French term for an entire region and climate where a grape is grown. It also sometimes refers to known flavours of a grape’s region.

Tannins

This is the naturally occurring compounds found in the skins, stems and pips of grapes. Tannins also act as a natural preservative to help the wine age and develop.

Body

This is the weight and fullness of a wine on your palate. Wine can be light, medium, or full-bodied. Full-bodied wines tend to be high in alcohol.

So there you have it, you probably knew all these characteristics of wine but wasn’t describing them with these terms; simply arm yourself with these words when talking about wine and voila, you’re a wine expert in the eyes of the ‘professionals.’
