WSET L4 Practice - Deductive Tasting Techniques


We will focus on "blind" tasting techniques which are now apparently called "deductive" tastings in some trendy circles.

In this session, we will taste 2 series of liquids:

1) 8 x water glasses with various levels of acidity, tannins, sugar, alcohol

2) 6 x wines showing from various grapes & regions, presented blind

The entire tasting will emphasize the factors that influence style and these together with the WSET SAT, we will learn how to focus on the most important clues to deduce grape & origin.

Tasting the water solutions, we will explore structure and the concept of balance. With the wines, we will understand that some information are more important than others and how linking it together leads to the right answer, everytime!

Thanks for your support in going through the slight inconveniences of registering via Eventbrite website as per the links below. This really helps me manage more efficiently!
