Why Some Wines Smell Like Flowers
If you’ve ever smelled a Muscat or Gewürztraminer wine, you probably noticed that it smelled like flowers. Where does this smell come from? Terpenes.
What are terpenes?
Terpenes are found in the skin of the grape. They constitute many of the floral, citrusy, or spicy compounds in essential oils. They are also responsible for the floral smell of marijuana.
