Olfactory heaven is your key to properly tasting wine | Buy Alcohol Online Canada
Welcome back from wherever you are and staying safe. Hopefull, you are all stayin' so fresh and so clean. A little while back, we put some heart and soul into a blog about using THOSE EYES to describe the wine you are sipping. We hope you enjoyed that drip of knowledge and we hope you smell this one the correct way! Without further ado...
NOW WE SWITCH TO THE NOSE
Yes, those nostrils on your face are essential to learn about and describe wine! Wine experts say that learning how to smell and describe wine is very important because more than 80% of your ability to taste comes from your ability to smell!
ETIQUETTE and HOW TO
Hopefully it goes without saying that your nose should only be so close to properly smell those aromas to give you some insight into the wine's journey into the bottle.
BRAIN PREP: pour le vin you are about to enjoy!
When you open up those nasal glands, your brain is "getting hyped" for the wine!
Brain processes are heavily influenced by our sense of smell before.
WANT TO BET
Just playing. No betting here. It is all love. But try this? Hold your nose and then put an orange in your mouth and let the mandibal run!
Halfway through chewing, release your nose.
Eureka, you can actually taste when you have your sense of smell.
TRY THESE WINES FOR THEIR OLFACTORY NOTES AND HEAVENLY SCENT
Guaranteed to make you "bent"
Oh last but not least - if your nose is a little clogged up, these are some go-to's for the TO Team at Victory:
1. Organic turmeric with a hot drink;
2. Green Tea (matcha kind);
3. A "quick shot" of habanero;
4. Eucalyptus in the steam room (if you are one of those lucky ones to have a private club to go go or one in your room and you can social distance at both); and
5. Salt water in the Aegean - obviously a little difficult and time consuming to get there but well worth it!
You will be enjoying your drink with far more appreciation and your brain will thank you. Like seriously, remember to treat your brain well because boy (or girl) does it do a lot for you and give it some thanks!
Enjoy these full bodied and intricate aromas from these wines!
