Wine events are the perfect way to enjoy wines at its best. Wine enthusiasts know that there are three basic principles that need to be followed when tasting wine. These are look, smell and taste. One needs to have a thorough knowledge about the way wine must be first looked at as soon as it is poured in the glass, smell and then finally taste the same. When looking at the wine, one needs to check the clarity and color of the wine. This gives an idea about the depth of the wine and its body. The glass can also be tilted at an angle and then looked against the light to check out its color. If the color of the wine is maroon, ruby, purple, garnet, brick, red or brownish, it is a red wine. If the color of the wine is pale yellow, clear, straw like, golden, light green, brown or amber, it is white wine. After trying out for a few times, one will start identifying wines like a pro.
The opacity of wine also helps in identifying its variety. If it is dark or watery, opaque or translucent, brilliant or dull, clear or cloudy can also tell about the quality and variety of wine. Swirling the wine in the glass leaves a little close to the edges and this also helps in the identification of wine.
Another critical factor that helps in the identification of wine is its smell. For this, it is important that a person smells the wine in a neutral environment, away from other overbearing smells like food, perfumes, sweat or other wines. The glass needs to be swirled 10-12 times after pouring the wine. This helps in evaporating of some of the alcohol from the wine and release its natural aroma. When a person smells the wine after swirling, he or she will be able to tell about the quality of the wine in a more accurate manner.
Last but not the least, tasting the wine is an important factor. The wine must be sipped and swirled and twirled in the mouth for a while. Wine enthusiasts believe that there are three taste phases, attack, evolution and then finish phases. Thus, one must wait and come to the finish phase before enjoying the taste of the wine. All these factors help in knowing more about the wines.
