Description for the typical smell (fragrance) and taste of a wine in the context of a wine evaluation or wine address. Roses have a broad spectrum 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 Muscat varieties/varieties and Riesling. Due to this aroma, some of these varieties are counted among the so-called bouquet varieties. In this context, the term perfumed is also often used.
There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.Sigi Hiss
