Teach you how to make wine
Some people say: “The difference between wine tasting and drinking is thinking.
In the West, wine tasting is regarded as an elegant and meticulous taste. Appreciating red wine is an elegant way of leisure.
Tasting can be divided into 5 basic steps: color, shaking, smelling, tasting and aftertaste.
As long as you have a keen sense and spirituality, and you have the patience and time, you will be able to appreciate the mystery and leisurely.
Watch the red wine first from the eyes, because the appearance of red wine is an important indicator of its health, quality characteristics and degree of possession.
First of all, you should check the bottle packaging and see if the international code on the label on the back of the bottle is 3 words. The French international code is 3 , see if there is a Chinese mark on the label on the back of the bottle; open the bottle and watch the wine on the bottle.Whether the text is the same as the text on the bottle label, in France, the bottle and the wine stopper are dedicated.
Drink red wine, the wine label is equivalent to the wine ID card.
On the wine label, it usually includes the name of the winery, the name of the wine, the variety of the wine, the capacity of the wine, the alcohol content, the country of production, the year of growth, and where to pack the bottle.
For experienced customers, this information is very important, or through the growing years of the grapes, it is known whether the growth process is perfect, or even decide whether it is an instant replacement or need to store for a few more years.
There are also distinctive patterns on the wine label.
In the past, this was mostly the symbol of the winery, and even the aristocratic logo that was handed down. The royal royal symbol or the scenery and buildings of the winery were unique.
In addition, since the wines are printed every year, too many drinkers retain the special vintage label for the aftertaste and even show off to friends.
Slowly, the collection of wine labels has become the yaxing of the alcoholic.
After reviewing the appearance, you can gently unplug the stopper, taking care not to shake the bottle, pour a small amount of red wine into a clear and transparent tulip-shaped wine glass, and pour it to about 5 cm from the foot of the cup.
Under bright light, hold the cup or the bottom of the cup, tilt it 45 degrees, change the white background and observe the appearance and color of the wine.
The appearance of red wine is evaluated mainly by color, clarity, concentration and gloss.
For good quality red wine, its clarification, translucent and lustrous are the first feelings and the basic quality of good wine.
The new wine is bright and distinct, and the wine is slightly yellowish brown.
The wine glass is tilted 45 degrees to observe. At this time, there is a layer of water in the joint between the wine and the cup wall. The wider the wine, the higher the alcohol content of the wine.
In this joint of the water body and the wine body, different colors can appear, thereby showing the age of the wine.
Blue and lavender are equal to 3 to 5 years old; red brick is equal to 5 to 6 years; amber is 8 to 10 years; orange color is expired.
In most normal cases, the color of the dry red wine is bright red, which means that the age of the wine is quite shallow, usually between 1 and 4 years old; the color of the dry red wine is purple, which means the wine has reached middle age, about 4By the age of 8; when the color of the dry red wine is brown, it means that the wine has reached the age of a young or old, usually 9 or over.
Different wine making procedures, different wine making styles, have different effects on the color change of the wine.
B Shake the bottom of the wine glass and shake the glass of wine in the cup to keep the body hanging on the wall.
Shake the ester, ether and acetaldehyde in a small amount of wine, so that the oxygen and red wine are fully fused, and the unique aroma of the red wine is released to the maximum extent, so that the taste of the wine is judged according to the aroma of the wine.
From the horizontal side of the side of the wine glass, shake the glass to see the speed of the wine flowing down the wall of the cup.
The more viscous the wine, the slower the speed and the better the quality of the wine.
C smells the nose is the most sensitive organ when we try wine.
In fact, the smell of the nose is closely related to the taste of the mouth taste, and the oral sensation confirms the experience of the nose.
Smell the wine without shaking the wine, the perceived smell is the “first smell” of the wine, also known as the “pre-scent”.
Before smelling the wine, it is best to take a breath of fresh air, then hold the cup and tilt the cup at 45 degrees. The tip of the nose is swept into the cup and smells the original smell of the wine. At this moment, the delicate and pleasant, elegant and rich aroma will come.
Slightly sneak a few times, do not take long deep, because the sense of smell is easy to passivate, especially when you want to evaluate a few lighter red wines.
Ask yourself if you like this smell, is it light?
Is it fresh?
Is it sour or sweet?
Thick or sweet?
Is it strong or graceful?
After the wine glass is shaken and shaken, the smell is quickly released from the wine, which is the “second smell” of the wine, also called “post-flavor”.Remember, the red wine’s scent looks the same color, reflecting the red wine variety and the maturity of the red wine itself, partly due to the brewing method.
The new reception will release the “exotic fragrance” unique to the grapes used in the brewing.
“Isolate” traditionally refers to the smell that people smell from light red wines, while the term “alcoholic” is often used to store red wine.
For Tibetan red wines, the aroma is long-lasting and rich, with floral and fragrant, fruity, earthy, oak, fur, and barbecue flavors.
D Don’t eat sweet food before tasting red wine, otherwise you will feel sour, bitter and awkward.
