Variety VS. Varietal

The most misused and confused wine terms.



Misused:



Variety - refers to the type of grape used to make various wines. Example: Merlot grape.

Varietal - refers to the wine only. To be called as such, wines must be made with 75 percent of that grape variety. Example: Merlot wine is made with the grape variety, merlot.

Dry - the absence of sugar that ferments to alcohol. It is not sourness which most people assume. That puckery feeling does not mean a wine is dry.



Confused:



Vintage - the year the grapes were grown. Many wines are not made from vintage grapes but are blended from wines of several different vintages.

Body - a sense of weight of the wine in your mouth, usually refers to alcohol content and how heavy a wine is.

Tannins - the puckery, astringent feeling associated with most red wines. They are responsible for increased friction between mouth surfaces leaving a sense of 'dryness.'



Gris and Grigio:



They mean the same, a white wine, with Gris being a French word and Grigio an Italian word.
