But what sounds like humbug is partly true. For example, that certain wines spit tones. However, the information on the label is often only half the story. 04/04/2019, 5:53 p.m. HomeIcon: Home Icon: Facebook Icon: Twitter Icon: Mail Icon: Messenger Icon: Whatsapp Icon: Link Icon: Share Icon: Messenger Share Icon: Whatsapp Share Icon: Copy Link Link 1/5
The deeper the indentation on the bottom of the bottle, the nobler the content. Humbug is that the quality of the wine has to do with the deepening on the bottom of the bottle. The "puncture floor", as the technical term is used, provides stability for champagne bottles, says Cornelia Banzhaf of the Verallia glassworks. This way the carbon dioxide pressure can be better distributed. In the case of wine, the indentation is only a design element and can only be used as a handle when elegantly pouring. It's a shame that it's not that easy to recognize quality.
Dry sparkling wine contains as little sugar as dry wine. The words dry, sec or dry on a bottle of sparkling wine do not mean the same thing as "dry" for wine. Dry wines may contain up to nine grams of residual sugar per liter, while dry sparkling wines contain 17 to 32 grams. That is why there are four further classifications of dry, sparkling, crémant and champagne: extra sec (extra dry, 12-17 g / l), brut (tart, under 12 g / l), extra brut (extra tart, 0- 6 g / l) and brut nature (natural, less than 3 g / l). However, one should not forget that the sparkling wine contained in the sparkling wine tastes bitter as does a low drinking temperature. In case of doubt, simply resort to brut.
Port wine is only available from Portugal. Port is a protected designation of origin. Since the Instituto dos Vinhos do Douro e Porto understands no fun. However, there are fortified wines that are very similar to the port. Simply because they are made using the same process. If you are looking for a liqueur wine that tastes of port but does not come from Porto, you can also find it among German winegrowers. Ask about flavors of dark dried fruits and nuts - or stay with the original.
Where Merlot is on it, only Merlot is in it. It would be nice. The information on the wine label is not mandatory. Even if the winemaker only identifies a single grape variety, the wine does not necessarily have to be made from it 100 percent. According to German and European wine legislation, for example, the label may say Merlot if at least 85 percent of the wine it contains has been obtained from this grape variety. It is crucial that the specified grape variety determines the taste. This rule also applies to locations and vintages!
The wine sings "Fox, you stole the goose" when pouring it. Admittedly, with a little imagination it seems understandable. If you pour out from a freshly uncorked Bordeaux bottle - the shape is decisive - you will hear a constantly rising melody of notes of the same length, which then remain on one pitch from the fifth to the eighth: Just like the children's song "Fox, you stole the goose" . However, the melodic vein of wine is exhausted with the second bar, while the folk song is more varied as a result. Despite everything: a beautiful myth.
