Tasting chocolate: here’s where the fun starts!

After a day at the vineyards, it’s only natural that you should extend your new-found wine tasting skills one step further to learn the delightful art of chocolate tasting! As with wine tasting, it’s easy to distinguish good quality from bad by using all your senses – not just taste but smell, sight, touch – and even sound!

Good quality chocolate should have a rich depth of colour with an attractive sheen and distinguishable gloss. The texture of the chocolate should be smooth and begin to melt within one minute of holding the chocolate. The sound is also important, with good chocolate making an audible ‘snap’ like the twig of a tree. Lighter chocolate makes a softer sound while darker chocolate has a crisper sound. If you close your eyes, the aroma of the chocolate should be clearly present, with just a tiny touch of natural vanilla undertones. And finally, to taste the chocolate, put a small piece of chocolate on your tongue. As it melts, feel the texture, while identifying the flavours that emerge.

What’s in a chocolate?

Cocoa beans are the vital ingredient in all chocolate. They are harvested twice a year from parts of Africa, South America and Asia. The raw product of cocoa beans also includes cocoa butter, cocoa powder and cocoa mass. Sugar and milk powder are then combined to create the delectable product that is chocolate.

There are three main types of chocolate:

"Awesome tour once again (my 3rd time now, it's that good). Matt is a legend, can't speak highly enough of him (even though he wore his Hawthorn jersey all day after the grand final). If you're looking for a fun day out, get onto the liquid gold brewery tour. Looking forward to the next trip with Top Gun in the future!"

Andrew

Testimonials

"This tour really was 'Top Gun'. Premier venues, tastings, lunch and coach travel with added fizz from Matt. We have been on wine trips around the world - California, France and Spain in particular - and this trip was up there with the very best. Close to Perth, short distance between wineries so more tastings and less travel time. Would recommend a visit to the Swan Valley. Many thanks again Matt for a fantastic day."
