Wine Tasting – Swirl

After you have evaluated you wine with your sight, it is time to “swirl” your wine.In this step you expose the wine to oxygen. This oxidation intensifies the aromas in the glass so that you can better sense them. When learning to swirl, hold your glass on the table by the base and swirl the wine. As you become more experienced you can hold the glass off the table by the stem.
