With all of the wine events happening in the Quad-Cities this month, do you have a system for identifying your favorite wine? Sommeliers often follow the five S’ to wine tasting for a consistent way to unearth each glass. Following the approach below allows wine enthusiasts to truly have a way to taste all elements within a wine. See – what color is the wine, does it have a different color on the rim versus the core? The colors you see are often indicators for what is yet to come. Swirl – When you swirl the wine, grab the base firmly and swirl in one direction gently. Smell – Many wines will have a multitude of aromas ranging from fruit to earthy elements, and even non-organics like tennis balls. Sip – Take a small sip and let it wash over all of your taste buds. Does the wine linger on your palate or does it disappear quickly? What flavors do you taste? Savor – At this point in the tasting it is time to consider what was tasted, do you continue to taste the wine, are there new flavors that emerge and lastly, do you like it? Next time you’re at a tasting event, try to employ the use of the 5 S’ to try and make each wine experience a little more enjoyable.
