tabaco (PO)

Description for especially the smell but also the taste of a wine in the context of a wine address. The aromatic substance megastigmatrienone is responsible for this. Especially wines from the varieties Chardonnay, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah have this unique dry-sweetish note of tobacco, which is typical for cold cigars. But this is also typical for wines that have undergone barrique ageing. A taste of roasted tobacco is caused by Sotolon. See also under Toasting as well as lists of all wine ingredients under Total extract and all aromas in the wine under Flavouring.
