Rose tone

Description for the typical smell (scent) and taste of a wine in the context of a wine address. Roses have a wide range of different aromas of apple, honey, raspberry, iris, clover, cress, moss, orange, pepper, violet, lemon and others. Responsible for the tone are the chemical substances citronellol, damascenone, geraniol and nerol. A rose tone is mainly found in white wines from Traminer varieties/varieties, but also in Muscat varieties/varieties and Riesling. Some of these varieties are classified as so-called bouquet varieties because of their aroma. The term perfumed is often used in this context.
