No party is complete without a wine. The variety of wine have occupied the bars. Consumption of wine is not that bad, provided it should done in limits and fresh.
There are some ways you can judge whether it's fresh or not:
The smell is off : If a wine's aroma is moldy or resembles a musty basement, wet cardboard, or vinegar, it's turned. A heavy raisin smell is another bad signal.
The red wine tastes sweet: If the bottle of red wine has the aroma of Port or tastes like dessert wine (even though it is neither of those two things), it has been overexposed to heat, and is therefore undrinkable.
The cork is pushed out slightly from the bottle :That's a sign the wine has overheated and expanded within the bottle.
The wine is a brownish color :A brown hue in red wine demonstrates that the liquid is past its prime. White wines that have darkened to a deep yellow or brownish straw color are usually oxidized.
You detect astringent or chemically flavors :Wine that lacks fruit, is raspy, too astringent, or has a paint-thinner taste is usually bad.
It tastes fizzy :but it's not a sparkling wine. A still wine that is fizzy or effervescent has undergone a second fermentation after the bottling and shouldn't be enjoyed.
