How to Taste Wine: The Palate Test, ‘Body’ – Novel Wines with Yaz and Ben Episode 2

Novel Wines with Yaz and Ben is our all-new web series starring broadcast journalist Yasmin Cooke as she begins to discover a whole new world of wine. Yasmin is joined by award-winning wine writer and Novel Wines co-founder Ben Franks.

In the first three episodes we do the “Palate Test”, a guide to tasting wine that looks at the three main components of white wine: acidity, body and sweetness.

Episode 2 is all about body and you can also do this at home. All you need is skimmed, semi-skimmed and full fat milk. Yaz and Ben and explore how we describe body as light, medium or full in a wine, thinking about how to look for balance when it comes to tasting wine!

After the Palate Test, we’ll be exploring one new wine every week from the Novel Wines range. You can view all of our wines and more interesting content about the world of wine by visiting our website at
