THE TASTE CASE
A unique online resource that offers an extremely easy and enjoyable way of learning about wine in the comfort of your own home!
You simply buy six different bottles of wine and then learn how to taste them by watching the video tutorials.
Oisly et Thésée ‘Vallée des Reines’ Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Loire, France
Baron de Badassière Viognier IGP Pays d’Oc 2016, Languedoc, France
Plantagenet Three Lions Chardonnay 2015 Western Australia, Australia
Innocent Bystander Pinot Noir 2016 Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia
Izadi Rioja Reserva 2013 Rioja, Spain
Montes Alpha Carmenère 2015 Colchagua Valley, Chile
These will teach you how to taste wine in a fun and systematic fashion that will soon become second nature, and then we will taste through each wine individually. For each wine I will explain where and how it was made along with some food matching suggestions.
This can be a perfect start to a dinner party, a great way to learn about wine with a partner or group of friends, or just because you want to understand and learn more about wine.
HOW IT WORKS
The concept and tutorials all revolve around my unique Wine Flavour Tree, which makes it easier to understand more about the grape varieties, aromas and flavours we find in a bottle of wine.
This is done through a series of videos, all of which are presented by myself, Sam Caporn, your very own Master of Wine, along with the additional resources found in the Taste Case.
The wines have all been selected because they are excellent examples of a specific grape variety and as such display many of the aromas and flavours depicted on the Flavour Tree.
As you taste your way around different grape varieties, and the videos guide you to the aromas and flavours you expect to find, you will be able to start to identify some by yourself and to work out what you like and get more and more out of every glass – cheers to that!
