I found this to be a very interesting article on minerality in wine. There is always a bunch of hype around terroir. While terroir is a wine’s expression of all components of its vineyard of origin’s micro or meso climate, many people erroneously focus their perception primarily on the influence of soil components on flavor. This article from Palate Press serves to clarify some of what has actually been scientifically observed regarding the flavors we perceive in wine—and pretty much, you can’t taste the soil, per se. Enjoy! xoxoSusan Minerality in wine: taken for granite?.
