Sensory Analysis: Wine Tasting
A major component of my Sensory Analysis class is the wine tasting. At the end of this class, our final project is to be able to pair a wine with a dish. So exciting!
It’s been really great learning about tastes, aromas, and textures of foods. Tasting wines is awesome, too, because it really makes you focus on aromas, and I think I’ve learned a lot in this short time.
We went through the history of growing grapes and making wines, different types of grapes (varietals), wine laws in different countries, old world vs new world wines, differences between whites, reds, roses, dessert wines, and sparkling wines, the flavors, aromas, and textures in wine, and how to make wines taste and smell the way you want them to.
My favorite wines are dessert wines. They are super sweet, and taste delicious!
Ah yes, what a rough life in wine class… NOT!
