Wine tasting is a process that consists of evaluating and describing the sensory characteristics of a wine, such as its aroma, taste, colour and texture. The aim is to determine the quality of the wine and its ability to satisfy the consumer’s palate.
To taste a wine, a few steps must be followed. First of all, the wine, its colour and viscosity must be observed. Then, the wine must be smelled, seeking to identify the primary and secondary aromas. Afterwards, the wine is tasted, seeking to identify the primary, secondary and tertiary flavours, as well as its texture in the mouth.
During the wine tasting, it is important to take into account the temperature of the wine, the quality of the glass used and the environment where the tasting takes place. In addition, it is advisable to use a tasting sheet to note down the sensory impressions of the wine.
Wine tasting is an activity that can be very fun and educational, and is an excellent way to discover new wines and improve your knowledge of the world of wine.
