A Guide For Wine Degustations
The own body and climate influence wine degustations. There are a few things one need to know before one even open the container
How One Feel
Know that if one has a cold, if one is tired, if one is having a bad day, if there is a lot of clamor around one or someone peeks, one is sitting waiting for the wine criticism, the tasting run can last. Surprisingly, tasters cannot press a button on our mind and turn on the “super tester” mode. In the chance that there is something one can fix, like going to a quieter place or requesting a little space and security, or taking a nap before tasting, don’t be shy for wine degustations.
Try to do the tasting in a sufficiently bright room, preferably with regular light, free of odors for wine tastings. Make an effort not to use aroma, after-shave astringent, antiperspirant, hand cream.
Sense Of Taste
Before tasting, make an effort not to drink espresso, eat spicy foods, or with garlic or onion. Usually, one eats a little bread before tasting. One can also eat bread in the middle of the wines and rinse the mouth with water to discard extra flavors.
The best plan to do the tasting is at noon, before eating. This is the second in which all of our faculties are ready. Know that in the first part of the day, everything seems superior to what it is. As tasters did our tasting test at 9:30 am earlier in the day, tasters were instructed to taste the wine before going for the test. They never proposed this at the college known for wine tastings and wine degustations.
White wines must be tasted before reds, lighter wines before heavier wines, reserve sweet wines for the end.
