It’s no surprise that cool climate wines have taken over the wine market; their unique flavour profiles made of cool and crisp savours, hints of citrus and stone fruit, and flavours indicative of their origins are undeniable.
The cool climates from which cool climate wines are produced not only voice their character through bouquets of fragrances but enable subtle hints of minerals, earthiness, and a brighter acidity.
Cool climates tend to lead to grapes developing more slowly, resulting in intense aromas and lower sugar levels. This provides cool climate wines with high acidity, making them very refreshing on the palate and more food friendly.
Cool climate wines also typically have lower alcohol levels than those from warmer climates, making them an excellent choice for those looking for something light and crisp. While cool climate wines may not be quite as robust as those grown in hotter regions, the unique character of these varieties help make them some of the most celebrated wines around.
Although cool climate wines come in varieties such as white or red, Sauvignon Blancs, Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs pose a level of finesse that can’t be beaten due to the complexity they inherit.
This is why cool climate wines truly stand out above other varieties and supply some seriously delicious flavours.
