Biden picks Kamala despite no geriatric medical degree
To spite all degrees
Wine is the oldest drink, which Homer sang in his Iliad . A drink of poets, artists, philosophers. Wine was conceived by people as a drink of the gods, apparently so that you can safely add the epithet divine to it.
Wine has such properties as falling in love, reconciling, inspiring, and consoling (perhaps, you shouldn't overdo it with the latter). It is not without reason that nature itself has awarded us five senses, of which two, the nose and tongue, have long been tenderly devoted to guilt.
First acquaintance ... What is it like?
Before we get started, let's remember that wine happens:
- dry - sugar content 1%;
- semi-dry - 2-3% sugar;
- dessert - 15-30% sugar.
You don't have to be an expert to enjoy this drink. The most important thing is that the wine is of high quality, no matter whether it is white or red. And the knowledge of how to drink wine correctly comes with practice. So, the three main components in evaluating wine are its color, smell and taste. Now in order.
Color is the first criterion by which we evaluate the drink. White wine will delight us with all sorts of shades ranging from light straw to golden. If it resembles strong tea in color or has an amber-greenish tint, this already suggests that you are probably not at all the drink, after tasting which, you will remain all in the same excitingly upbeat mood and excellent health.
Shades of red wines ranging from light ruby to dark garnet can also tell a lot. The intensity and richness of red wines changes with the age the drink is destined to live with and the varieties of raw materials used.
I would also like to focus on vintage wines that are aged in barrels. Over time, thanks to natural oxidation processes, they lose their color, sediment is allowed in vintage wines, there is nothing to worry about.
The age of the wine is indicated by the following words: young (sold in the harvest year from which they are made), ordinary (not earlier than January 1 of the next year), vintage (must be aged in oak barrels for at least 1.5 years) or collection (the period of maturation of the drink in an oak barrel plus at least 3 years of aging).
The next stage is tasting the aroma of the drink. After removing the cortical prodon't be in a hurry to try it, give the wine a little breathe for 10-15 minutes, contact with oxygen will only benefit it. After that, pour it into a glass, stir it, inhale slowly and then you should feel exactly the aroma that is indicated on the label of the purchased bottle.
The range of flavors will allow you not only to test your knowledge base, but also to identify a fake. If you open the wine and you hear clear strawberry or blackberry aromas that are not at all inherent in grape wines, it means that it contains flavorings. Once again, carefully study the label, if it says that the drink is flavored - then you bought a one hundred percent fake.
The color and aroma have already given you an idea of the drink, it's time to get acquainted with its taste. The main task of the first sip is to linger on the tongue and give you the opportunity to evaluate whether you like the drink or not. The next sip is bigger, it helps to reveal the taste deeper. To do this, chew a little wine.
After you have answered the question Wine, what is it? , the following suggests itself: what is it eaten with ...?
The ability to combine good wine, delicious food and pleasant company will help you create the atmosphere of an evening that you will definitely want to repeat.
When choosing a companion to your meal, adhere to a simple principle: complex dishes are combined with simple wines, and vice versa, the simpler the dish, the richer the drink you choose. Red wine is perfect with dishes based on red meat.
Also, no one will blame you for combining such gastronomic products as sushi, spaghetti, pizza, natural and bread patties, schnitzel, lamb, pork, liver with it. Salmon and trout (due to their fat content) will also be a great addition to the red varieties of this drink.
But for white wine, all seafood, caviar, fish, veal, and poultry will become the best neighbors on the table without exception. I want to draw your attention separately to low-fat sausages and, of course, cheese. After all, cheese + wine = a perfect match!
Everything that I have described above refers primarily to DRY WINE. And when it comes to semi-sweet and sweet varieties of wine, any desserts, chocolate, ice cream, all possible fruits will rightfully be considered the leader here - your imagination can be limitless.
For a wine to have a dense and distinct taste, it must be served at a certain temperature. So, it is correct to drink white wines chilled to 10-12 degrees in winter, and in summer - up to 8-10 degrees. It is correct to drink red wines in winter at a temperature of 18-20 degrees, and in summer 16-18. Drink dry wines properly at a temperature of 14-16.
In this article we are only talking about wine, and now I have inI go exclusively to him. Because an exotic combination of seemingly innocent drinks can give an explosive alcoholic reaction.
If, nevertheless, the soul longs for change, then try to remember that the degree of the drinks you use should increase in the future, after you have exceeded your alcohol regime, for example, wine-cognac, it is not recommended to return back to wine.
When drinking drinks with a degree, the body begins to produce catalase, an enzyme that increases resistance to intoxication. So, the more actively you move, the more of this enzyme you will release.
Everyone makes a conclusion for himself, but it is impossible in any case to refuse faithful companions of every merry feast, dance. Thanks to this method alone, the neutralization of the effect of alcohol increases 2-3 times at once.
Now that is not recommended to eat with wine.
Everyone has probably heard the story about a sandwich with a thick layer of butter. Now forget !!! A simple snacking habit will help save you from unwanted intoxication. Do not abuse fatty foods, it does not remove the degree, but only treacherously masks it.
And when you lose your guard completely, there will be an unexpected outcome. Why is the catch phrase so deeply rooted among the people who fell asleep with his face in OLIVIER ? Do not repeat other people's mistakes.
Foods that do not go well with wine include overly spicy dishes and pickles (sauerkraut, cucumbers, mushrooms) seasoned with vinegar and spices.
Be careful with nuts - they block the receptors of the tongue and it, as they say, drops out of the game. And remember, tobacco smoke kills not only the smell of wine, but also the smell of your perfume.
In order to understand the question of how to drink wine correctly, it remains to find out from which glasses to do it. Everything is simple here, the main thing is not to confuse anything later.
So, there are three generally accepted forms for a wine glass. The first is an egg-shaped cut, serving sparkling wines and champagne. The second is in the form of a tulip, it is called tulip-shaped, it is intended for red wine. And finally, a bell shape with a wide top, which is great for white wines.
When we talk about the capacity of a glass, we must understand that it is approximately 100-120 g. In a tulip-shaped glass, due to this shape, the correct concentration of the aroma emitted by the wine passes. And through the ovoid cut it is so nice to watch the bubbles rise.
Through thin and transparent glass, you can easily feel the temperature of the drink and fully appreciate the beauty of its color. The thin edges of the glass help target the wine to the very tip of your tongue.
There are enough things in our lives that we enjoy. ButAgree, a glass of wine will undoubtedly add special colors to it!
