GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT WINE AND WINE SECTOR
How should wine be aged, and are there differences in aging white and red wines ?
When wine is aged in the bottle, most important thing is to lay the bottles horizontally so that cork always remains in contact with wine and does not dry out. If cork dries out, then it contracts and however tiny such contractions may be, they may allow air (therefore) oxygen) to slip into the bottle and contact wine with the undesired effect of oxidizing the wine. Apart from this, bottle must be kept from contact with direct light and sudden temperature differences, both of which would effect the cork in a similar fashion. 1A temperature of 15 degrees Centigrade is desired average ambient temperature, but in no instance should wine be stored at temperatures exceeding 25 degrees Centigrade for prolonged periods. It is also not wise to move about and/or shake the bottles during the aging period. There is no difference between red and white wine as far as storage conditions are concerned. Duration of storage, however, differs greatly from wine to wine.
What is the proper service temperature of wine ?
Usually white and rose wines are served chilled and red wines are served at room temperature. Generally 15 degrees Centigrade is the proper serving temperature for white wines, but some prefer to serve even colder considering that the glass will remain for some time on the table or even held by hand which will increase the temperature anyway. On the other hand, red wine should not be served at warmer than room temperature (above 20 degrees Centigrade, alcohol taste comes forward and may tip the fine balances of the wine). For example, a wine bottle should always be kept away from heated surfaces or any heater.
What is so special about wine glasses ?
Wine glass must not be filled to more than its half volume. This will allow you to swirl the glass slightly and allow the vapors of the wine slowly break off from the liquid
whilst a half filled glass assures that swirling will not spill any wine from the glass. Ideal wine glass should have a stem for allowing a hand-grip whilst hand's high temperature (36.7 degrees Centigrade) is kept away from the glass surface which is in contact with wine. Furthermore, the stem allows the hand a finer swirl movement, and passage of 360 degrees of glass will ensure the eye a quick tour of wine's clarity and color. The reason for a globe shaped glass, narrowing at top, is to allow build up of rising wine vapors in the glass, but stopping them from escaping quickly from the narrow opening, giving the drinker extra split seconds for letting the nose do its work feeling those vapors. Therefore, the more body in the wine, the larger globed glass is the basic rule. Deep tannin reds of Bordeaux always command large globe glasses. Connosieurs always prefer plain uncolored glass which is thin and likewise thinly rimmed. Thickness of the glass (likewise cut-glass decorations) is undesirable as it breaks the light ray and distorts visual inspection of the wine.
Is all that swirling, sniffing and spitting that goes on during wine tasting really necessary!!?
cleanskins.com recently surfed the web looking for some tasting guidelines and found a great site at www.imagesoffoodandwine.co.uk
We've adapted the following tips on tasting:
Don't fill the glass for tasting because you need to leave room for the swirling: about a third of a glass should be enough.
Hold the glass up to the light to see if it is clear or cloudy. Does it contain sediment or any other solid matter? When the wine is older, in the case of red wines, it tends to be a deep red colour.
Swirl the glass gently to activate the aromatic particles so that when you move on the sniffing of the wine you will appreciate it fully.
Tilt the glass towards your face and put your nose inside the glass. You should bend your head slightly forward and tip the glass to a 45 degree angle.
Now inhale gently for about 4 seconds bearing in mind that the scent from the wine may vary during one sniff.
People often wonder why wine experts pull funny faces when taking a mouthful but there is a very important reason for doing this. After taking a mouthful they try to spread the wine around all the different areas of the mouth. At the tip of the tongue are the detectors for sweetness, in the middle is saltiness, at the sides acidity and sourness are detected and at the very back of the tongue there are sensors that detect bitterness, so make sure you get a big enough mouthful the coat your whole mouth.
Another tip to maximise the flavour of the wine is to take in air while it's in your mouth. It is only necessary to have a tiny opening at the side of your mouth and to suck in immediately as you are taking a drink of wine. After this breath downwards through your nose to intensify the sensation.
The following terms may seem fanciful at first, but with practice and the right tasting techniques, you should be able to start picking them out from the taste of the wines.
