TASTING TIPS

EVALUATE BY SIGHT
The first thing to do is examine the shade or hue of the wine in the light. Is the wine opaque or transparent? Is it consistently colored throughout, or does it have a lighter rim and a darker core? The intensity of the color of a wine intimates the intensity in flavor you will experience when tasting the wine.

EVALUATE BY SCENT
Now that you’ve given the wine a good look, it's time to take a sniff. Give the glass a swirl. Then bring it to your nose. Don't bury your nose in the glass. Instead, keep it above the glass. Take a series of brief, short sniffs and savour the wine's unique bouquet. Smelling the wine offers you a preview of what you're about to taste.

 

 

 

EVALUATE BY TASTE
Once you've seen and sniffed, you're ready to sip. Take a small swig and swirl it around so it coats your entire mouth. In doing so, you hit every taste center, which gives you a true sense of texture. Sommeliers tend to classify the taste in three steps, the initial impression, the evolution and the finish.
