What The Essential Wine Tasting Guide?
How often have you been at a winery tasting room nosing a glass of wine, and you think 'I know what that aroma is' but you just can't put a name to it, even though it's on the tip of your tongue..... literally. Then you start to think about all those wine books that you have sitting back at home, and how you don't have these with you when you need them the most.
What you need is something that is light, portable, discreet, and compact enough to fit into your pocket, purse, or wallet. Something that provides you with essential bite sized chunks of information about wine tasting and acts as a quick reference guide, or a useful prompt.
The Essential Wine Tasting Guide, developed as a result of experiences such as this, is the culmination of ten years of wine tasting notes and extensive research of major grape varieties and wine styles within the classic wine growing regions of the world.
Slip it out, open it up, and it unfolds to reveal 34 mini-pages of compact wine tasting information to help guide you in the analytical tasting of wine.
Features of The Essential Wine Tasting Guide include:
Sparkling, white, red, dessert and fortified wines including Brandy, Madeira, Tokaji & Sherry
Major and emerging international wine grape varieties & wine styles
Over 1 000 tactile and varietal wine aroma descriptors
Wine descriptor groups
Wine colour comparison guide
Faults in wine
Temperature serving guide
Neutral white background for wine colour assessment
All this, and it's only the size of a credit card! You will quickly realise, along with many international wine professionals, that the Essential Wine Tasting Guide© is an extremely useful wine tool, that is...well, essential!
