Wine Tasting

 

The art of wine tasting

Wine  tasting is the acquaintance with the wine,  the perception of its character  using our senses. We can say that there are different levels of tasting, according to the purpose the wine has been made for. Thus, in a first level the  interest in tasting  is focused on the enjoyment and pleasure we  can get out of the particular wine. Here, there are no standards; thus, personal taste prevails! On another level, tasting attempts to define objective criteria for quality wine. The art of tasting could be summarized in three steps: visual examination,  smell and tasting. The tasting process is not complicated but requires immense experience and knowledge of the wine world.

This tasting is  performed  by professional tasters who try to describe a wine by its composition, analysing and judging its basic properties: Appearance, aromas, flavour, emphasizing the qualities or defects of the wine. These testers' opinion is valuable in determining the commercial value of the wine. Finally, from another point of view, by  tasting oenologists  want  to explain the organoleptic characteristics of wine; based on the entire production process, from vine to bottle.
