Our product pages feature an easy new way to find out if a wine is right for you: Using the range of dots on the scale, you can now see a wine's attributes at a glance, and discover what to expect in terms of sweetness, body, flavour intensity, tannins and acidity.
Sweetness refers to the perception of how sweet a wine tastes in your mouth and does not necessarily correspond to its actual sugar content.
This is the perception of “weight” in a wine. A light-bodied wine will feel lighter in your mouth than a full-bodied one.
More dots means a wine has bold, intense flavours; while fewer dots means more mellow and subtle flavours.
Tannins are more about the texture or mouth feel. They’re responsible for adding structure to red wines and produce a drying, puckering sensation.
Acidity is what gives white wine its crisp and refreshing flavour, and can range from soft and light, like ripe pear, to crisp and bright, like lemon.
