Pressed for Thought: Structure

  • Newport Wine Cellar & Gourmet 11 Memorial Boulevard Newport, RI 02840 United States (map)


In this class we will continue honing your tasting skills and identifying the things you like about wines with a focus on the question of structure and ageability. For this discussion about structure, we will focus on Pinot Noir because it is a varietal that lends itself well to this conversation. What creates a wine’s structure, and why would a wine maker choose to do that? Well, it has to do with both the grape and its vinification; tannis, acidity, and technique all play a part. Join us to find out more.
