What are the different types of Wine?
There are currently six types of Wine. These are; Red, White, Rose, Sparkling, Fortified and Dessert Wine. Red is known for its rich red colour and bitter, tannin taste. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir are all examples of red wines. These are made from black grapes that are fermented with skins, seeds and stems. White Wine is made from both black and white grapes without the skin to create a beautiful golden colour. Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio are top choices of white Wine. It has fewer tannins and is best chilled. Rose is known for its pink colour and fruity notes. It's made from fermenting the juice of red grapes with the skins for a short amount of time to create a slight change in colour. It's a beautiful type of Wine that is widely enjoyed in the summer. Sparkling is carbonated and is made from black and white grapes. Champagne and Prosecco are examples of Sparkling Wine. Dessert Wines are much sweeter and are typically enjoyed after a meal. Fortified wines are those such as Port and Sherry. These are created when spirits such as Brandy are added during the fermentation process.
