Read the label
“The front label tells you the origins and sometimes the grape variety. There will be more about the taste and flavour on the back.”
Give it a chance!
“Taste the wine first on its own, not cluttered with other flavours and scents. You can’t judge it if you’ve got a mouthful of hummus!”
Smell and taste
“Jiggle the glass to disturb the surface, put your nose in the glass and take a deep sniff. A great quality wine normally has complex layers.”
Let it linger
“A great wine’s flavour will linger in your mouth. A good test is whether you can hold a conversation between sips and still get a hint of that flavour.”
Look at the bottle again
“Is what you tasted listed on the back? If it’s a good quality wine the flavours and balance should really sing.”
Serve it well
“To taste quality and complexity, make sure it’s served in the best way. Cool for a white. For a red, open, pour a glass then allow to soften for 30mins.”
