Wine has evolved over the years to become a sensory thing just as food has evolved with its taste sensations. We use our five senses to enjoy food and wine in today’s world. Unlike hundreds of years ago, when food and wine were just something to be consumed to stay alive, our world has provided consumers with the ability to smell and appreciate creations.
We use our senses of sight, smell, touch, hearing and palette to appreciate all that food and wine have to offer from our perspective. With our eyes we look at the beauty of wine and food. We can see the color and clarity of wine when we feel the characteristics of the wine we like. The straw color of a Chardonnay indicating a buttery wine or the lighter red color of a Pinot Noir indicating less tannin or the shrimp color of a Rose’ pleases our mind through our eyes.
