A visual wine tasting note


Honeyapricots2compressedGotta love Andrew – he’s always setting some sort of challenge for his friends 😉  This time, it’s to produce a visual tasting note of a wine.

Auf Wedersehn!

These tests are often performed throughout the making of the wine as well as prior to bottling. In response to the results, a winemaker can then decide if more sulfur needs to be added or other slight adjustments before it is bottled.
