“Geraniol, like rose petals”
Certified wine flavour standard used to train professional tasters to recognize and scale the intensity of geraniol character. Geraniol imparts a positive rose-like varietal flavour note to certain white wines. It is present in grapes in a bound form and released by enzyme during fermentation. The amount formed depends on the variety of grapes used, their growing conditions, how there were extracted to form the must, the yeast strain, and the conditions employed during fermentation.
