Description for the characteristic aroma(smell, taste) of certain wines in the context of a wine evaluation or wine address, which originates from distinct fruity or spicy aromas in the berries or in the grape must (primary aroma). Some grape varieties possess particularly odour or taste-intensive aroma substances that can characterise the entire wine bouquet and are recognised as typical of the variety. These are especially the so-called bouquet varieties (aroma varieties). Related terms are floral, fragrant and perfumed. See also under flavouring.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
