Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Bordeaux, Riesling, and Merlot are just a few of the hundreds of types of wine available around the world.
Did you know that wine is made from grapes that is quite different from the ones we find at the grocery? Wine grapes are known to be small, sweet, with thick skin, and they also contain seeds.
There are over a thousand kind of wine grapes and they are all used to make different types of wine. However, all wines can be categorised in five fundamental categories of red, white, rosé, sparkling and fortified.
Red Wine - This still wine is made from red or black grapes. It ranges from sweet to bone-dry and dark to light. The dark colour of red wine is determined though the process of maceration.
White Wine - Produced from green, red and black grapes. The main difference with the red wine is that white wine is fermented without the grape skins. The flavour of this still wine range from zesty to light and creamy to rich.
Rosé - Made from black grapes where the skins have been removed before, the still wine of rosé is produced by either blending white and red wine together, skin contact or saignée (bleeding) which is considered as the best method to make rosé. The sweet and dry styles of rosé are quite popular.
Sparkling Wine - The winemaking style of sparkling wine include a secondary fermentation which result in the bubbles. This can either be rosé, white or red and can range from sweet to rich and minerally.
Fortified Wine - When wine is combined with spirits it creates fortified wine. This is common a dessert wine. However, you can also find dry-styled wines that are fortified such as the dry Sherry.
Red wine glasses are generally larger than white wine glasses. This is simply because red wine requires oxidisation for its flavour to fully develop, and larger glasses allow more of the red win to come into contact with the air. Red wine is served closer to room temperature, while white wine is mostly served chilled.
The most common red wines include Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon and if can be drank while you are having food that are rich in flavour. On the other hand, popular white wines include Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, and Chardonnay, and are better served with food that are mild and light in flavour.
