This 40-hour short course aims to provide wine lovers with the skills to describe and appreciate the flavours, aromas and sensations of wine.
Students will commence the course by learning to evaluate their own palate thresholds in terms of basic taste sensations and progress to appreciate the aroma and flavour profiles of a series of wines and wine styles. Wine quality assessment and wine faults are also included.
Each session includes tasting a range of commercial wines that exhibit the features that are studied in that session.
Students should download the application form from NMIT's website, complete and email or post the form to NMIT.
