The Elsom Cellars Wine Word of the Week – Bouquet

Very simply, a wine aroma is derived from the grape variety (e.g. Zinfandel or Cabernet Franc) and a wine bouquet is derived from the winemaking process of fermentation and aging. A classic example of a wine bouquet is the smell of vanilla, which usually comes from aging wine in new oak barrels.
