VermouthVermouth is a type of aromatized wine. It is fortified and flavored with botanicals typically featuring Artemisia absinthium (wormwood) as the primary bittering agent. In the EU, it must be made from 75% wine and its ABV is 14.5-22%. Vermouth styles range from extra dry to sweet.
"On the nose, the marjoram comes through as does the wormwood, but neither is overpowering. The vermouth is full on the palate with a touch of sweetness on the tongue. There's also a bit of a nutty flavor from the sherry wine. Since the acidity is so high, the sweetness seems balance the vermouth into the blanco style and offer up a full body. Finish is only slightly bitter. "
