Wine Tasting - Getting Started

The ability to sniff out and untangle the subtle threads that weave into complex wine aromas is essential for tasting. Try holding your nose while you swallow a mouthful of wine; you will find that most of the flavor is muted. Your nose is the key to your palate. Once you learn how to give wine a good sniff, you’ll begin to develop the ability to isolate flavors—to notice the way they unfold and interact—and, to some degree, assign language to describe them.

This is exactly what wine professionals—those who make, sell, buy, and write about wine—are able to do. For any wine enthusiast, it’s the pay-off for all the effort.

While there is no one right or wrong way to learn how to taste, some “rules” do apply.

First and foremost, you need to be methodical and focused. Find your own approach and consistently follow it. Not every single glass or bottle of wine must be analyzed in this way, of course. But if you really want to learn about wine, a certain amount of dedication is required. Whenever you have a glass of wine in your hand, make it a habit to take a minute to stop all conversation, shut out all distraction and focus your attention on the wine’s appearance, scents, flavors and finish.

You can run through this mental checklist in a minute or less, and it will quickly help you to plot out the compass points of your palate. Of course, sipping a chilled rosé from a paper cup at a garden party doesn’t require the same effort as diving into a well-aged Bordeaux served from a Riedel Sommelier Series glass. But those are the extreme ends of the spectrum. Just about everything you are likely to encounter falls somewhere in between.

ــــ طريقة تقطيع البصل بدون دموع ــــ ــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ عندما تقومي بتقطيع البصل تطلق الاجزاء الداخلية للبصل إزنزيم يتفاعل داخل البصلة بدوره ليطلق غاز فيجتمع الغاز مع الماء ويطلق حمض ,وعينك تحتوي على الماء فيتفاعل الغاز اخل عينك مسبب نوبات البكاء ,ولكن كيف تجنب هذا التفاعل ؟ - إستخدمي سكين حاد جدا لتقطيع البصل فإستخدام شفرة حاده للتقطيع تقوم تتسبب فى افرازات إنزيمية اقل عوضاً عن سحق البصل او استخدام سكين غير حاد . - ضعي البصل قبل تقطيعه فى الفريزر لمدة 10 دقائق والا تتجاوز الـ 15 دقيقة فدرجة الحرارة المنخفضه جداً تجعل الانزيم الذي يطلق من البصل اثناء تقطيعه اقل . - قومي بتقطيع البصل فى اناء به ماء او فى ماء جاري فهي طريقة فعاله ولكنها صعبه ويصعب فيها التحكم بالبصل اثناء التقطيع ولكن اذا تم اتقانها ستصبح سهله . - تنفسي عن طريق الفم مع اخراج اللسان للخارج تتسبب هذه الحركة بسحب الغاز المتبقي الى اللسان وإبعاده عن اعصاب الشم . - لا تقفي اثناء تقطيع البصل امام تيار الهواء فهو يتسبب بتوجيه الغاز نحوك ولكن دامئا كوني مع تيار الهواء . - قومي بمضغ قطعة من الخبر ببطء شديد اثناء التقطيع فهي ستجنبك اى شعور بالدموع . - يمكن استخدام الملح او الخل بإضافته الى الماء اثناء التقطيع سمنع ذلك من وصول الغاز اليك . - يمكن اشعال شمعه بالقرب منك او تقطيع البصل بالقرب من مصدر حرار سيقلل ذلك من شعورك بالدموع .
