Question: If wine is made from grapes, where do the other flavours like cherry, chocolate and vanilla come from? 🍷
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Answer: There are hundreds of aroma compounds in a glass of wine! Aroma compounds can come from the grapes themselves, the winemaking, and/or the ageing of the wine. Plus, aroma compounds can also interact with each other to create even more aroma compounds. ⚡️

⚡️Pet Nat is the short form for "Pétillant Naturel" meaning “naturally sparkling”. This refers to the natural method of carbonating wine that predates the traditional Champagne method. Try the Pure & Naked from @weingut.am.stein for a fresh and fun expression of this wine style⚡️Want to learn more? Keep scrolling for a quick rundown: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Traditional method = Sparkling wine made with 1) primary fermentation aka the alcoholic fermentation and 2) a secondary fermentation occurs in the bottle, creating the bubbles. Before the wine is finished, the yeast sediment is "disgorged" and the sparkling wine cage is placed on the bottle. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Pet Nat aka Methode Ancestrale = The wine gets its bubbles from the carbon dioxide created in the primary fermentation. As the wine is fermenting, the wine is bottled and capped with a crown cap. The carbon dioxide gets dissolved into the wine in the form of tiny bubble and the yeast that is created in the bottle stays in the bottle. Pet-Nat wines are purposefully cloudy due to the yeast that remains in the bottle. They can also have a wonderfully creamy texture thanks to these yeast lees #winelife #petnat #pureandnaked #wineshop #halifax

Looking for your next weeknight wine pairing? Look no further than Domaine Le Galantin Bandol Rosé!

About Bandol: The tiny appellation of Bandol is located directly on the Mediterranean coast, just east of Marseilles, France. 🌸Bandol is the only French appellation that cultivates mainly the Mourvèdre grape to produce incredible red and rosé wines. These wines are deeper, darker and more savoury that some of the other rosés you will find on our shelves. 🇫🇷 Want to try Bandol rosé on a budget? @domainelegalantin is an organic-practicing family estate set in an idyllic location near the sunny seaside. This is a blend of 50 % Mourvèdre, 25% Cinsault and 25% Grenache. The wine is a light salmon-orange colour. Subtle floral and citrus notes on the nose. 🍇Each grape offers something special to the final wine: the dominant Mourvèdre brings more tannin and structure than other Provence rosés, Grenache balances the tannins with its plush fruit, and Cinsault adds freshness to the blend.☀️Open up this wine to accompany a picnic, a charcuterie board, or Provencal-style cuisine- think tomatoes, garlic, saffron, anchovies, olives, and wild herbs #youcansipwithus #winelife #rosé #bandolrosé

Looking for something special this #SundayFunday? We’re open until 8PM tonight and @hfxwinemerchant has a great recommendation for you: Italy’s Monte Delle Vigne Lambrusco- just $20 on our shelves 🍷 🇮🇹🍷
.

He says: “Lambrusco is an Italian red frizzante (slightly sparkling) wine from Emilia – Romagna. Monte Delle Vigne is a organic family owned winery founded in 1983 in the town of Parma. MDV Lambrusco Classica is NOT the Lambrusco you may remember from decades ago, The sweet, bulk wine is gone and has been replaced by a more vibrant modern style. Cherry, plum and black licorice compliment the perfect balance between acidity and a touch of sweetness (10 grams of RS per liter) Frothy and very easy to drink when served chilled” #wine #winelife #lambrusco
