We believe that everyone can classify each kind of wine using their eyes. By looking at the color, you can distinguish which bottle is a red wine, a white wine, or rose wine. However, each wine has its distinctive characteristic. Let us guide you through how different they are.
Some people may understand that white wine is only made from green grapes, but actually it can be produced from red or black grapes as well. The outstanding notes of white wine are freshness and creamy depending on the ingredients used.
In general, red wine has a white color similar to white wine; it becomes red due to the addition of grape peels, grape pollen, as well as seeds to ferment it. Unlike white wine, red wine is also fermented at higher temperatures in order to extract color, tannin, and its unique aroma. The concentration varies with the fermentation period.
Rose wines can be made from red grape or white grape varieties. The skin of red grapes or other parts will be used in the fermentation over a short period in order to get the pink of the rose as required. There is also a method which is to blend the tastes of red wine with white wine; this usually results in characteristics ranging from dry to fruit-driven.
Dessert wine will be mostly served with dessert, but some countries like England often drink fruit-driven white wine to stimulate their appetite before the meal and drink fruit driven red wine after the meal. Dessert Wine is also subdivided into “Port” or “Sherry” according to production.
Sparkling wine has the taste of the bubble which naturally occurs in the fermentation process, or may be added during fermentation. The name of sparkling wine can be referred to differently according to its origins or sources of production. For example, sparkling wine produced in the Champagne region, is called Champagne, but many people mistakenly call it sparkling wine. The Monsoon Valley's Brut Blanc De Blanc uses the exact same production method as Champagne, but it is called sparkling wine because it is not produced in the designated area.
