White wines need the right amount of aroma to reach their full potential. But capturing the full aroma of many white wine grapes takes skill and solid techniques. WineMaker Contributing Writer Tim Patterson walks you through the methods to make your next batch of white wine be wonderfully (and appropriately) aromatic.
Tim Patterson was told by a very wise graduate school advisor to write about his vices. As a result Tim has ended up focusing his freelance writing career over the last three decades on wine and spirits from his Berkeley, California home. He frequently writes about wine varietals as a Contributing Writer for WineMaker. He has also collaborated on a book about the history of a winery in the Livermore Valley in California. He is an active home winemaker, specializing in aromatic whites such as Gewürztraminer and Viognier. You can order the recordings as Tim continues to follow his vices leading seminars on “Winemaking by Varietal” and “Making Aromatic White Wines”.
