For many, there is little more satisfying than the perfect glass of wine. Wines are unique in their diversity, complexity and nuances, intricately drawing character from an array of ingredients, environmental factors and fermentation conditions.

 In the food product development world, wine flavour is equally desirable. Using real wine provides authenticity but is also vastly more expensive and their applicability is limited. That is why wine flavours are most often an ingredient of choice in everything from wine-based beverages to chocolates. Wine flavours are designed to recreate the bouquet and textured experience of wine, from sweet, jammy ports to fruity zinfandels to dry, savory Bordeaux. The aroma of quality bottles can be deconstructed and distilled into cost-effective flavour blends with a range of solubilities for any application.

Novotaste offers a range of characteristic wine flavours and acid systems for range of applications. Contact us today for a sample.
