Description for the smell and taste of a wine in the context of a wine address. In a positive sense, this certifies that the wine has a pleasant yeast note and a fresh, tangy taste, as is deliberately brought about during a yeast sediment storage. A yeast tone is typical for young Riesling wines from the French Alsace and for wines from the Loire region Muscadet. In sparkling wines such as champagne and sparkling wine, a fine yeasty note is naturally the rule or a desired effect. In a negative sense, this can be due to an undesirable second fermentation in the bottle and is then also called "beery". In this regard, see also under wine faults.
I have great respect for the scope and quality of the wein.plus encyclopaedia. It is a unique place to go for crisp, sound information on terms from the world of wine.Dr. Edgar Müller
