How to taste

Sight, smell and taste are the three senses one uses when tasting wine. Tasting is done to evaluate wine and, though it may seem complex, anyone can do it.  

Start by looking at the wine and notice its colour. Then, raise the glass to your nose and feel the aromas that are been released. If you want you can slightly swirl the glass to stimulate the release of other aromas. Bring the glass to your mouth and take a sip: the flavour is the combination of what was detected by the smell with what is felt by the taste. In the mouth you will feel the wine’s structure and acidity.
