The Influence of Geomorphology on the Sensorial Quality of Red Wines from the Șarba wine region, Odobești Vineyard

Daniela Maria, “Lucian Blaga” University from Sibiu

This study aims at making a sensorial analysis of red wines from the Șarba wine region, Odobești Vineyard. In order to determine wines from a sensory point of view, we first studied the influence of geomorphology on the sensory character. In the analysis of red wines sensorial quality we used several wines from 2012 (i.e. Pinot noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Black Fetească and Merlot), as 2012 was a beneficial year from the point of view of red grapes ripening, and the oenoclimatic index was favourable to obtaining savoury and flavoured wines. The vegetal flavour does not affect the wines' harmony too much.

Keywords: red wines, Odobești Vineyard, Pinot noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Black Fetească and Merlot
