Wine is a liquid, how can it possibly have “Body”? What are people talking about when they say that a wine has good body, or that it is heavy or light bodied?
As with many words used in describing wine, “Body” can throw off even an experienced wine drinker. To help everyone understand a bit more we made the video below to explain the difference between light, medium, and heavy bodied wine using three different types of milk. As you will see in the video, the weight and thickness of the milk equates to the body of the liquid which is the same in wine.
Enjoy the video and please share with your friends!
