What is the Systematic Approach to Tasting Wine?
The Systematic Approach to Tasting® (SAT) is a method of note taking developed by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust to make tasting notes more objective and comparable.
The methodology breaks down the evaluation of wine, spirits or sake into appearance, nose, palate and conclusion, supported by universal terminology.

The SAT is published at four progressive levels of difficulty in support of the four levels WSET qualifications available. This app has been built for wines at level two making it suitable for those who are new to the SAT method as well as those that have completed WSET courses.

A systematic approach to tasting provides wine tasters with a foundation on which to build and develop their skills. The SAT forms an integral part of all WSET courses.

No nonsense and well structured!! I was looking for an app just to record my personal tasting notes... and this is it. Its great and I recommend it also for anyone who is not familiar with the WSET tasting format. A few additional features would make the app perfect: - editing of completed entries - access to the label/bottle images (to capture info there) - backup and/or ability to copy or download the database (I would hate to lose these notes) Q: can I backup the entires?

WSET is a great learning platform. I'm taking the online course for level 2 and it's brilliant! This app looked fab on their website but it was crashing constantly when logging in. App team is super responsive and fixed this problem very fast! I'm now using the app with no problem. It's very easy to use, great practice for SAT approach and to build my own archive of wine tasting notes. 4 stars vs 5 is only for not being able to edit the notes once submitted.

Easy to use. A fix needed with the low medium high settings that only appear as numbers in your finished tasting notes. Also, it would be better if once saved you were able to make changes to your tasting notes instead of having to delete and redo.
