You can be tempted to sip and swallow wine immediately you come into contact with it, but you can find it exciting if you take some time to understand it before you take it down your throat.By involving fully your five senses, when tasting wine, you will get the best out of it.What is key to right wine tasting is your five senses, which will give you an understanding of the wine.There is an amazing wine tasting experience which most wine tasters have never had before, due to the tempting nature of the beverage make quick sips and swallows.However, real wine tasting is not all about making holding a glass of wine, sipping and then swallowing.There are three stages in proper wine tasting that you did not know.
The first phase involves observing the favorite drink before sipping.By looking at the wine you will expect to see your favorite properties of color and texture which will make you appreciate and want to taste it further. The Color will give you a clue as to the taste you will expect before you even takes a sip.The next step is swirling which will give you time to further examine the color and texture of the beverage.
The level of excitement will rise when you feel a taste that you anticipate, and this is the very reason for keenly observing the surface of your wine.Taking time to observe your wine will enable you to understand its true contents of wine, especially from the color.Another property you will be keen to look at is the texture of the wine, which will give an idea of its contents. In addition, because wine keeps turning in color, you can get a clue as to the age it is, at that moment.
The next stage after observing is using your nose to tell you how the taste will be like. Smelling will give confirmation as to whether what you observed is really true. By smelling, you are not there yet, you are only trying to profile the taste of the contents of the drink. Some wines can have that aromatic nutty and high profile oak which really motivate to derive the greatest enjoyment out of it.
Last but not least is actual tasting which involves sipping, holding it in the mouth for some time and then swallowing.At the tasting stage, you will then engage all your senses at the same time to get an experience which will give you the best out of the drink. The mouth is filled with pads which will taste the sweetness, acidity, bitterness and the flavor.The temperature of the wine will also be detected in the mouth as it makes the drink more enjoyable and memorable.
