MINERALITY IN WINE
Exploring the Enigmatic, Enchanting World of Mineral Wines
Minerality in wine is a subject of heated debate in the wine world. According to scientists, the actual mineral uptake of the grape vine is so insignificant as to be imperceptible to the senses. And yet, no one can deny the alluring aromas of struck flint or wet stone in fine white Burgundies and Gavi. A delicate tingling sensation, or subtle saline note on the palate of certain crisp whites and light red wines also evokes minerality.
