Updated: Mar 25, 2020

What are wine aromas?

What are the 2 categories of aromas in wine?

Can wine be fruity?

Can wine be floral or Herbal?

Wine Aromas are composed in 2 main categories: The Aromas and the Bouquet.

The Aromas refer to the primary Aromas which are directly related to the grape itself.

These aromas are usually spread into 4 categories:

Fruity, Flowery, Herbal and Mineral.

The bouquet refers to the secondary and tertiary aromas.

The secondary aromas are related to the winemaking process.

There are 3 main origins : from Malolactic fermentation, from yeast and finally from the barrel. The tertiary aromas are related to the aging of the wine.

We recommend using a wine aroma wheel to have more details on the different aromas..
