Wine tasting for learning or assessment requires tracking and analyzing our perceptions. Use this template to save your tasting notes. You can use this form in 2 ways:
- As a record of your tastings, to remember your sensations with a wine.
- As a deductive form, if you are trying a blind tasting, to identify the wine.
The wine tasting form has 4 parts:
- Wine profile: name, origin, vintage, alcohol, variety, style.
- Wine description: 3 parts: appearance, nose and palate.
- Assessment: assign a quality level and drinking recommendations.
- Identification: when conducting a blind test, a space for your deduction is provided.
- Many of the fields offer a drop-down list with options.
- In the Nose Description, you can begin by identifying the main aromas and then use the blank space to specify more details. For example, you can mark a wine as “Fruit” and “Red fruit” and specify “strawberry”.
- Some fields offer an extra clue to determine the correct description. For example, “Full body” is described as “high alcohol, tannins and flavor”. So, if you selected these in the alcohol and tannins drop-downs, this is how you should mark the body.
- To fill Assessment, there are questions you should ask yourself such as “what are the levels of each structural component“ or if the aromas “evolve” in the glass.
- In the “Readiness for drinking” assessment, you should evaluate which structure the wine has based on the qualities you identified in the check boxes.
