The Technique Of Tasting

Watch an experienced wmetaster at work, and the process seems simple: a glance, a sniff, a sip and a spit. Then a note is made, and on to the next wine. This expertise can be acquired, as can the few "tools" needed. The photographs opposite show the process step by step.

The first stage in tasting a wine is to examine colour, then smell and finally taste. In a tasting note these would usually be described under the headings of appearance, nose and palate, followed by a conclusion.
