How to taste: Acidity

Acidity is the level of PH in the wine and it is best described as the mouthwatering effect that occurs on consumption. The level can be assessed by taking a sip of wine, swirling it around your mouth, swallowing and then tilting your head forward with your mouth slightly opened. You will feel saliva building up and the speed and volume will determine the level of acidity in the wine. High acidity would be equal to taking a bite of a fresh lemon and low acidity would be eating cooked mushrooms.
