Body: A term used to describe the overall “feel” of a wine in your mouth.
New World: Wine produced outside of its traditional homeland of continental Europe (which is called, unsurprisingly, the Old World).
Oak: Wine stored in oak barrels can be imparted with a variety of pleasing aromas.
Oenophile: A fancy-pants word for wine-lover, but with the added implication of a certain level of expertise.
Tannins: Organic compounds responsible for wine’s astringent taste.
Terroir: Refers to the many factors of sun, soil, wind and water that can vary from vineyard to vineyard and that combine to influence the taste and quality of a wine.
