(smell or taste) of grapes (GB)
fruité (F)
dall’odore e sapore di uva (I)
grapey (GB)

Description for the typical smell and taste of a wine after fresh grapes as part of a wine address, These are so-called primary aromas, which are already present in the berries and are particularly noticeable in the pressed juice. These are usually present only with young wines and will over the course of the aging or. bottle aging covered by newly formed aromas (see also under Aroma ). Often one reads that wines from Muscatel varieties especially have this graubigen tone. But this has no connection and grape must not with the nutmeg be confused. The reason for this misconception could be that Muscatel wines are often sweetened and marketed and drunk early. On the other hand dry Muscat wines have no grapey tone.
