I thought it was an excellent idea to be able to try this at home. I did enjoy the video which I found very helpful.
I recently tried a WSET SAT calibration wine tasting pack from John at Northern Wine school. There were 4 white wines and 2 red wines. They were chosen to illustrate the different aromas and flavours and it was great to taste them back to back to note the differences. The tasting was backed up with a very informative video which featured the same wines. As recommended I tasted the wines first with my chart (level 2) and then read the tasting notes before watching the video. It was reassuring to agree with John’s comments but I still have a bit to go before I am truly assessing the wines. I will definitely do it again.
A horizontal tasting that calibrates your palate to assess and recognise the appropriate levels in different wines of: colour, aroma, acidity, sweetness, tannin, flavour intensity, primary, secondary and tertiary characteristics, finish and quality.
Created to assist WSET Level 2 and 3 Wine students studying with any provider, but useful for anyone looking to develop their professional tasting skills or considering studying a WSET course.
