Wine Terminology

As a casual wine drinker, I know some, but not many, wine terms. I've started with what I know and will add over time. When I hear a new term, I will add both the formal definition and a casual wine drinker translation.

 

Stop by often and learn with me! And don't be shy about sending me new terms you learn to include in the list!

Wine and Cheese

Tannins

The phenolic compounds in wines that leave a bitter, dry, and puckery feeling in the mouth.*

You know how sometimes you drink a glass of wine and then crave water right after? The tannins are what does it. The worse you need water, the more tanniny it is! If you really want a deep dive on tannins, there is a great piece here on Vinology, my favorite site for wine education when I have questions.
