How do you choose your wines?
Was that a red or a white? Wine has been paired with many dishes to compliment the richness of mouth watering meats, salads, fish and desserts, but do you know how to tell if your wine is the right choice?
1.) Red and white wines can be dignified because of their many differences. Pour an 8 ounce glass of wine, hold the wine at a 40 degree angle letting light pass through the glass, you should see very clearly, if you can see elements that can not be identified you have a bad glass of wine. Many of these elements can be pieces of cork, missed grape skins, small insects, and sometimes dirt.
2.) Pairing meats with wines can be difficult or very easy, for your red and dryer wines you may serve with beef, poultry and cheese. Most whites will have a sweeter flavor and Ice wine is down right amazing for any dessert choice. Release the aroma of your wine, to smell the wine thoroughly swish your glass, let wine hit sides of glass and release those killer aromas.
