If you are looking to improve your ability to identify aromas and flavours in wine with real precision, and improve your tasting ability, then this course is for you.
This 2-day course covers 14 classic grape varietals and the flavour profiles associated with them. For each grape variety you will be provided with a selection of 3 to 5 perfume strips dipped in pure aromatic essences commonly associated with that grape. For each perfume strip you will develop a technique for identifying the aromatic characters.
We will then taste a total of 24 classic wines made from those grapes so you can learn to identify those aromas in the glass and improve your tasting ability. You will also learn about the classic regions associated with those grapes and how the styles vary by region. This is a fascinating opportunity to dramatically improve your ability to taste, describe and identify wines.
This Sensory Masterclass course is open to anyone and everyone looking to enhance their ability to identify aromas and flavours. These courses are appropriate and beneficial for all levels of wine knowledge whether this is your first wine class or you are preparing for a tasting examination.
