Palm Beach Wine Co endeavor to taste every wine that comes onto the market in order to select only the best products at any given price point. With over 14,000 labels currently on the Australian Market as well as samples arriving from every corner of the globe this is a monumental task, and one that is often joked about by customers as being a 'dream job.' In reality, judging wines professionally, as opposed to simply tasting wines, requires discipline and concentration.​

All wines are initially reviewed and rated by the Palm Beach Wine Co tasting panel of experienced wine consultants by a proper evaluation method looking closely at the following 4 aspects:

1. SIGHT consisting of four categories: (a) colour (b) viscosity (c) brilliance (d) depth 

2. NOSE consisting of four categories: (a) aroma (b) faults (c) variety (d) intensity

3. PALATE consisting of four categories: (a) complexity (b) concentration (c) fruit (d) length

4. FINISH consisting of four categories: (a) aftertaste (b) balance (c) tannin / phenolics (d) acid
