wine tasting is examining and testing the varieties and texture of wine using different formalized methodologies, and this process has been established from the 14th century.
What are the steps in wine tasting?
• Look- every wine has a different look and color. You need to understand and check the different types of color it has and quickly examine it in 5-10 seconds. You can examine the wine’s appearance through its bottle, including certain types such as vintage, A.B.V., and grape variety.
• Smell- smelling of the wine requires a step by the procedure. The fruit is the main ingredient here, so you need to examine the smell of fruits based on citrus, orchard, red or blue fruits. The smell can be divided into three aromas, such as primary, secondary, and tertiary. The primary aroma consists of herbs, fruits, and floral notes. Secondary aroma consists of cheese rind, stale beer, and nut husk. Tertiary aroma has savory such as roasted nuts, coconut, and old tobacco.
• Taste every wine has a smell of grapes due to its presence and acidic content. The second important factor is the climate as climate change can change the grapes’ taste, which can ultimately change the wine’s taste. It comes in two varieties bitter and sweet. And sometimes it is salty too.
Before going through certain wine features, you must know that there are two varieties of red wine and white wine: basic ingredient vinegar and a special aroma.
