An Article on Wine & Terroir by Cosmos Magazine

There's an almost infinite variety of wines. Within each variety of wine what creates the myriad of incredible flavours? Using grape wines as examples, we found this fantastic article which explores the relationship between wines and their terroir (vineyard's environmental characteristics).

Written by Andrew Masterson at Cosmos Magazine in Australia, the article explores flavours, microbes, flocculation, and malic acid... as well as the effects of "fluctuating populations of wild yeasts" and the unwanted smells of "mouse cage, wet dog and sweaty socks".

And you can listen to the article being read aloud on Soundcloud - how good is that?!
