Wine labels are a work of art!

Todays Date: January 18, 2019

Reading a wine label is not just any man’s fare. Not everyone can just pick up a bottle of red wine or white wine or a rose and read the label off the way a wine lover, connoisseur or sommelier would. Reading a wine label is a very important part of wine drinking and you must have noticed that generally, before you are served wine in a hotel the service professionals or the sommelier generally show you the wine label and allow you to examine the bottle and the wine label before the wine, or a sample of the wine is served.
The first thing to be noticed on a wine label is that the label will always have the name of the winemaker or winery. This will also help you identify the wine next time you want to order the same bottle. The label will then also have an appellation on it. Appellation is basically the name of the country or region where the grapes of this wine were grown. For example it can say something as broad as South West Australia or it can say specifically Winegrowers Direct Vineyards, Australia. Label will also mention the type how we get it. For example buy wine online.

Thewine labels then also have a vintage. A vintage on a vine label usually means the year in which the grapes for that particular wine were harvested. A lot of time this date is mistakenly understood to be year the wine was bottled, but no that is not true! The Vintage can also be written in the local language of the region which may be Italian, German, and French etc. Then, the wine label will also have another misunderstood item called variety. This is commonly misunderstood to be the variety of wine as in red or white but in actuality, variety on a wine label means the kind of grapes used to make that wine, and varietal labeling is not found on all wines because many wine makers do not disclose the varietal content or disclose only what is required by law.
Some wines also have the degree of ripeness on them. The same wine can have several degrees of ripeness and can be sweet, semi-sweet etc. The ripeness label part, if present, can also be used to illustrate the type of Australian wine, as in dry, desert etc. The wine label can also mention if thw wine was estate bottled. This means that the wine label will also illustrate if the wine was grown and bottle in the same wine yard or wine estate.
It must be remembered that not all of the above items are present on every wine label. Some have these details, some don’t. Some labels may even have some extra or optional information that the vineyard or the winery or the bottling plant wants to put in. this extra information an include tax information, Serial numbers, AP numbers and so on and so forth. Many wine bottles also have a back label that is filled with handling instructions and any other information that the wine making company wants to give to the consumer.
