Rebecca: Have you ever wondered if you’re truly appreciating your wine? Hi, I am Rebecca Breighton and welcome to watchojo.com, and today I am speaking with Samelea Carla Prize about wine tasting and the techniques involved.
Carla: So the fist thing you want to do is you want to swirl. You can do it two ways. You can lift it up, always towards you, never away from you. It’s just opening up for you to then sniff. It will give you the amount of alcohol, the acidity the fruit, everything comes from memory. In wine tasting you are always going to focus on the fact that you know it from somewhere else and then you go and you savor it. You take in a little bit; you put it all around your mouth. As soon as you swallow, very lightly, just blow out, that will bring all the memories back of your smell, so it will help you to be a better taster. This is very, very calm, it’s refreshing, it’s not too acidic, and it’s really perfect for a meal that could be anything. Rose is not only for the summer, you can have Rose all year round and is especially good for people who don’t necessarily like Red wine. Roses and Reds tend to be served a little bit warmer, so they’re already available to you in the nose. There’s usually more alcohol, so you start to smell it and then go in. You want it to be balanced, where you always have fruit and always have acid, and that is very important to have a balanced wine. The Roses are the kind of wines that go very well with cheese. They also go very well with Rose, it’s made from Red wine grapes. The skin is left on just a little bit to be able to extract the color. I’m really big on blends and a lot of Someliers are because the wine maker showing, they know where their grapes are coming from and they know how to blend them all perfectly together. So here’s a little bit more important, with the red wine you are going to check the color always, and you want to see from a rim to the core if there is an even distribution of color. Then you’re going to need to aerate it, a lot more, because it really usually has more alcohol and needs a little bit more time out in the open, it’s got a lot of alcohol, so you are going to smelling very easily, and you can see the difference between white Rose and red that there is a transition to alcohol and much more fruit.
