What to Consider when Classifying Fine Wines?
By Carry Lais
The wine grape revolution was further carried by Charles Krug who
started the winery business in 1861 and according to the statistics there
were almost 150 wineries working commercially by 1889.Some earlier
wineries were Schramsberg (founded in 1862), Beringer (1876) and
Inglenook (1879).As the life is not always the bed of roses, the rapid
growth of wine industry faced the prices crash problem and the phylloxera
- a North American species of insects gave a stunning blow to the vintners
by attacking the wide areas of wine grape.
A not so typical rose wine made from the Merlot grape, this deeply pink-
hued wine stands out from the rest. Combining the features of a red and
white wine, this ros¨¦ is a light refreshing version of the red Merlot,
with just the right body and crisp flavors to make it a default
wine of choice for meals. These attributes are also the main
reason why this particular wine is considered as a fine wine.
However, the exact and true meaning of a white wine can't be
underrated. There are many definitions and characteristics that
have been used just to define fine wines but all of them may still
vary from one person to another.
The main reason behind this is that people have different
tastes. Therefore, what may seem fine to one person may not
for others. This goes to show that fine wines will be classified
according to the criteria of the person drinking the wine.
Classification of wines according to its fine quality and distinction
is usually based on the ˇ°track recordˇ± of the wine, where its value and
reputation is used as an underlying factor that will define the quality of
wines being sold at an auction.
Nevertheless, to clearly identify the real excellence behind a good wine
will still depend on some solid factors that people must know. Here is a list
of some of the aspects that must be considered when classifying fine
Fine wines are generally classified according to its given mode of
production and area. For instance, most of the fine wines are typified as
German made. However, one cannot simply deduce that what has
worked as fine before may not necessarily be fine today.
In order for a wine to be classified as fine, there must be some balance in
all of its parts. This means that no part of the wine, such as its flavor or
color, should be a cut above the rest. It is extremely important that all of
the elements contained in the wine should achieve harmony with one
another in order to come up with one delectable taste.
The elements contained in wines should not be basic and simple. Even if it
achieves balance, the elements should have a little distinction from one
another so as to create an unfathomable taste that drinkers would like to
discover. It is that certain mystery that creates the fineness in wines.
Indeed, the fineness of wines is fully dependent on its quality. Fine wines
should always make an impression.
