Wine and Fruit Aromas

Learn to detect fruit aromas. Wine will usually have some kind of fruit aroma. Experiment with different types of wine and learn to recognize what those aromas are. Swirl your glass with gusto and put your nose deep inside of it. For red wine, the primary aromatics are categorized into black fruits or red fruits. Black fruits consist of blackberries, plums, blueberries etc. while red fruits consist of strawberries, raspberries, cherries etc. The first question to ask yourself is whether the aromas are black or red fruits and from there you can pinpoint the specific fruit. White wine fruit aromas can be anything from the simpler citrus and apple to more exotic tropical fruits like pineapple, banana, and lychee fruit. Once you learn to recognize these aromas on their own, you’ll be more apt to find them in your wine. How did you first learn to detect fruit aromas in wine?

  1. I always wondered why the aromas of two bottles of wine from the same vineyard or same region taste different. In researching this I have found several reasons. These factor can include altitude, position of the vine relative to the sun, angle of incline, water drainage and climate. Enjoy the elixir of the gods!
