Although the colour scale of fossil resin ranges from white, yellow, red, green, blue, brown to black, 90% of it is in the typical golden yellow to cognac colour. In wine, this is the typical dark yellow colour of older white wines. However, oxidative wines such as port, sherry, Marsala and similar dessert wines, as well as sweet wines such as Tokaj Aszú, Trockenbeerenauslesen and ice wines often have this honey-like h ue. Amber wines are also often characterised by a caramel-like flavour. See also under wine address and wine rating.
For me, Lexicon from wein.plus is the most comprehensive and best source of information about wine currently available.Egon Mark
