Tasting and Fault identification
Our expert tasters will make a general assessment on the quality and the commercial acceptability of wines, and provide a descriptive summary of the characteristics of the wine. In addition, parameters such as the batch number, type of closure or size of the container will be considered to give an overall assessment on shelf life.
Our tasting services also offer difference tests, which are conducted with a panel of accredited tasters in our sensory suite. These tests are conducted under standardised conditions, using isolated booths with dark, coded glasses and data are recorded via our Compusense system. In the triangular test, tasters receive three glasses: two contain product A, one contains a product B. The tasters are asked to identify product B (i.e. the odd one out). Triangle tests are therefore useful as a very sensitive tool to check for significant differences between wines, such as differences between batches, or for the influence of different storage conditions.
Amount to send: Tasting 1 bottle; difference testing and fault identification, 2 bottles of each product.
