“Vanilla, like ice cream, or oak-aged wine”
Certified wine flavour standard used to train professional wine tasters to recognize and scale the intensity of vanilla character.
Vanillin imparts a creamy aroma and smooth mouthfeel to both red and white wines at low concentrations. Development of this flavour is associated with oak ageing. The amount of vanillin formed is a function of wine composition, choice and treatment of oak, the age of the wood at the time of maturation and – of course – the maturation time.
