The Art of Tasting Wine
A Tasty Subject?
Gauging the personality and character of the wine that we are sipping is an awe-inspiring journey. If we want to learn this beautiful art of tasting and understanding great quality wine, the first thing we need to do is create the right ambience for it.
Serving temperature is a crucial element when tasting wine. A wine that is a degree too warm or too cold can seriously impair the tasting experience, particularly when tasting high quality wines. There are a few basic rules that should be observed if this exercise is to be a success: aperitif wines should be served slightly cooler, and the use of an ice bucket is perfectly acceptable even for red wines, although not to excess. The serving temperature should never exceed 18°C, as a wine will never reveal its true qualities when it is too warm.
We run these occasional tastings throughout the year. They are opportunities to explore a vintage, a property, a type of wine, a country’s style, a dinner party line up with nibbles… and so on. We generally taste the wines in pairs, and we give background information plus commentary, and ask for your feedback.
