Although the colour scale of the fossil resin ranges from white, yellow, red, green, blue, brown to black, 90% of them are in typical golden yellow-brownish or dark yellow colour, also known as cognac colour. In the case of wine, this means the typical dark yellow colour of mainly older white wines. But also oxidatively aged wines such as port, sherry, marsala and similar dessert wines, as well as sweet wines such as Tokaj Aszú, Trockenbeerenauslese and ice wines often show this honey-like colour. Amber-coloured wines also quite often have a caramel-like taste. See also under wine evaluation.
