There’s a variety of factors that play a part in a successful wine tasting experience, one of which is the type of wine glass you select.
To get started, make sure that the wine glasses you will serve in are clean and thoroughly dry, as any external aroma or taste can derail the whole process.
Choosing a wine glass comes down to: shape of the glass, size, and glass quality. Because you need to observe your wine, you should always use a clear, non-stained glass, so as to be able to appreciate its color and appearance.
The size of the glass is also decisive — it must be sufficiently wide to swirl the wine, thereby releasing all the aromas and permitting you to proceed on your tasting experience by employing your sense of smell.
The ideal glass for the reds of TRIO Wines: Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon
Wine should be served in a glass that allows it to reach its full potential. Red wines, for example, require space to open up and breathe, so it makes sense to break out the bigger glasses when opening a TRIO Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon.
Your ideal wine glass for reds should be wide enough to fit your nose just inside the bowl to be able to capture the wine’s aromas.
The ideal glass for TRIO Chardonnay
To enjoy this citric Chardonnay, serve in wine glasses with a slightly smaller bowl so as to preserve floral aromas and maintain cooler temperatures.
Remember that white wine should be served between 8˚C and 10˚C (46˚F-50˚F). Much like its red counterparts, white wine consumed over the recommended temperature can diminish its flavours against alcohol. Conversely, serving below 8˚C can dull the wine’s texture, and thereby lessen the wine’s inherent aromas and flavours.
