The shape of the wine glass also determines the first contact point at the entrance of the wine.
To drink wine with higher acidity, you should choose a tulip cup-shaped wine glass. The mouth of the cup can make the wine flow through the sweet area on the tip of the tongue first, highlighting its fruity taste and balancing the original higher acidity. When tasting wine with heavy fruit flavor and low acidity, you can use a glass with a larger opening to allow the wine to flow to the middle of the tongue and then to all sides, creating a harmonious feeling of fruit flavor and acidity.
Wine glasses of different shapes and curvatures have a great difference and influence on the aroma and taste of the wine, which always surprises wine lovers who are new to this way. Generally speaking, grape varieties are different from wine quality and producing area, and aroma, fruit taste, acidity, tannin and alcohol content are also very different. The wine glass does not change the nature of the wine. However, the shape of the wine glass can determine the flow direction, smell, quality and strength of the wine, which in turn affects the aroma, taste, balance and finish of the wine. Therefore, through the guide of the shape of the cup body, the wine can be allowed to flow into the appropriate taste zone of the tongue (the tongue has 4 different taste zones, the tip of the tongue is the most sensitive to sweetness, the back of the tongue is the most sensitive to bitterness, and the inside and outside of the tongue are respectively It is most sensitive to acid and saltiness), which determines the final appearance of the structure and flavor of the wine.
