White, Rose or Blush Wines taste best chilled 45°F to 55°F (7° to 13°C), but not too cold. When wine is too cold, it's aromas and flavors are harder to enjoy due to the coldness of the wine.
The Pleasure and Art of Tasting Wine
Wine Tasting is a sensory experience. That’s why we use the four S’s as a guide, they are quite simple; See, Swirl, Sniff and Sip the wine.
- See the color and clarity of the wine as you see it in the glass.
- Swirl the wine in the glass to release the distinctive aromas of the grape variety.
- Sniff the wine by bringing the glass to your nose. The can nose literally make thousands of discriminations. Try describing the aromas to your friends and colleagues.
- Sip the wine and hold it in your mouth. Gently draw air through your teeth to direct aromas to the nasal passages. Note any acidity, aromas or sweetness. Four sensations - sweet, sour, bitterness and salt - are all perceived through taste. Temperature, tannins (astringency) and the effervescence (bubbles) of sparkling wines are also experienced through the sense of touch in the mouth.
Serving of Wines
There are only two hard-and-fast rules when serving wine: don’t spill it and don’t quaff it! Wine is made to be enjoyed in moderation and if possible with company.
