Although we all know when we are enjoying a glass of wine, it can be difficult to define what makes a ‘good wine’. This section will help those who love wine, but would like to know more about the important factors to consider when tasting. We’ll examine the qualities to look for when tasting and drinking, including colour, ‘nose’ or smell, taste (sweetness, acidity, complexity etc) and length, amongst other qualities.
It is common to assume that good wine must also be expensive, but this need not be the case. When you know what to look for, it will be much easier to find a reasonably priced and good quality wine.
