The world of white wine, and where to begin? There are hundreds of varieties of white wine grapes planted in every corner of the globe! And every one of those corners produces varying styles and flavour profiles of white wine. White wines can be bone dry, medium dry, sweet and even super sweet (dessert wine).
White wines are often considered more refreshing, and lighter in both style and taste than red wines. Because of this, white wines are often enjoyed during hot summer months and in warmer climates. They go fantastically well with all types of food, and certain types of white wine can even be paired with red meat.
So, how do they get their glorious straw-yellow, yellow-green or yellow-gold colour? It´s because they are fermented without skin contact. They are mainly from "white" grapes, which are green or yellow in colour, such as the Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc and Riesling grapes, just to name a few. Some white wine is also made from grapes with coloured skin, provided that the obtained grape juice is not stained. White wine is produced by the alcoholic fermentation of the non-coloured pulp of grapes.
