White Wine vs. Red Wine
Wine is praised worldwide for its various health benefits, as well as its range of distinctive flavors. For many wine lovers, an evening meal isn’t complete without the perfect red or white wine. So, which best suits your pallet: white or red? The answer is: it all comes down to taste:
- Red Wine: Red wine is made from crushed dark red and black grapes that are fermented with skins attached. Tannins in the grapes give red wine its customarily rich flavor, which is why it’s often paired with hearty foods like steak or lamb chops.
- White Wine: Unlike red wine, white wine is made from white grapes with no skins or seeds; yeast is added to the grape mixture for fermentation. White wine has a refreshingly fruity taste, and goes well with chicken or pasta dishes with light sauces.
