Weekly wine defined: Concentration

February 25th, 2013 by brynn grimley

Mary writes:

Concentration: This is an important component for many wine tasters. Or “non” component, perhaps.

That’s because concentrated wines have less water, making the flavors and aromas more pronounced. Concentration of grapes and must involves evaporation techniques.

These techniques could be drying the grapes before making the wine, freezing, either by Mother Nature or the deep freeze, or cooking the wine such as Madeira.
