情境介紹

任職於跨國企業的 Eric Wang,這個月公派至美國加州出差。

Eric 趁著假日至納帕山谷 ( Napa Valley) 參加品酒行程。品酒講師 Jane 很熱情地歡迎訪客??

Jane: Welcome to Napa Valley—home to America’s premium1 wines.

What kind of wine do you prefer?

Eric: Actually, I’m not a wine connoisseur2.

Jane: No worries. Shall we start with red wine then? The Merlot has a black-cherry flavor with

a round texture3. It goes with anything. Now try the Pinot Noir. It’s quite palatable4 !

Eric: Oh yes. I like this. It smells fruity5.

Jane: It’s an excellent complement to salmon, lamb and Japanese dishes.

Now try the white wines.

Eric: Mmm. This one has more of a citrus6 flavor, and a hint7 of vanilla8.

Jane: Yes, you’re right. The Chardonnay is a dry9 wine that goes nicely with chicken and fish.

Finally, try the Sauvignon Blanc. It’s lighter than the Chardonnay and has more of an

herbal10 quality to it.

Eric: Hmmm……yes, it’s crisp11 and refreshing. But I also detect12 a slightly sour apple taste.

It’s a bit smoky, too.

Jane: Well done. Your senses are very discriminating13 !

Eric: Thank you. I think I am starting to gain an appreciation for wine.

中文翻譯

Jane: 歡迎來到納帕山谷──美國頂級葡萄酒的家鄉。你偏好哪一種款式的酒呢?

Eric: 其實??我不是個品酒行家。

Jane: 別擔心。那麼我們從紅酒開始好嗎?這是梅洛,具有黑櫻桃的味道並帶有圓潤的質地。

這款酒可以佐以各式菜餚。現在來試試黑皮諾,是滿好喝的酒!

Eric: 喔!好喝!這個味道我喜歡,聞起來有果香味。

Jane: 這款酒搭配鮭魚、羊肉和日式料理,都可以成為絕配。現在來嘗嘗白酒。

Eric: 嗯!這款酒含較多的柑橘味,並有一點點香草氣息。

Jane: 是的,你說對了。夏多內是不甜的白酒,適宜搭配雞肉和魚肉。最後來試試白蘇維濃。

這款酒比夏多內淡一些,帶有比較多草本的味道。

Eric: 嗯??喝起來清新又清爽。不過我也察覺到淡淡的青蘋果酸味。這款酒也有一點煙燻味。

Jane: 太厲害了。你的感官超有鑑別力!

Eric: 謝謝。我覺得我漸漸開始懂得品酒了。
