THE ELEMENTS OF WINE MINERALITY

Minerality is one of the most commonly used and yet least understood wine descriptors

THE ELEMENTS OF WINE MINERALITY
June 12th, 8:30AM - 1:00PM - SRJC Shone Farm

What is minerality in wine? Such a broad question... Minerality is one of the most commonly used and yet least understood wine descriptors. Until recently, speculation as to the origins and expression of minerality were ambiguous at best.

Enartis is organizing an exciting, interactive seminar to exchange, discuss, define, taste and discover the attributes and sensory properties of wine minerality.
