Taste profile

Primary flavors

Raspberry

One of the tartest red fruits, raspberry has a distinctive flavour and aroma that’s relished in desserts and confectionery. Given these characteristics, it’s more commonly detected as a primary aroma in ripe and fruit-forward red wines with medium to high acidity.

Black Pepper

With some wines, you could be forgiven for thinking someone had sneakily ground some pepper into your glass. Overall, the characteristic flavour of black peppercorns is spicy, woody, warm, terpy and herbaceous.

Leather

A leather wine tasting note is often paired with notes of vanilla, toast and cedar. It's a savoury note that you'll often find in a wine that has muted primary fruit characteristics that come from the grapes themselves. There are some that believe that leather is more of a texture from tannins than an aroma.

Secondary flavors

Toast

Depending on how much toasting the barrel has had, the flavours will differ. If the barrels have had light toasting, the toasty characteristics will be more subtle. As the toasting becomes heavier, the characteristics become stronger flavours:
Light Toasting – Cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, coconut or caramel
Medium Toasting – Coffee, cocoa, toast, caramel, vanilla or honey
Heavy Toasting – Vanilla, smoke, crème brûlée, butterscotch, toffee

Vanilla

Vanilla is a result of oak aging. The wood acts as a seasoning to add flavor and texture to a wine.
