White Wine is a wine whose colour can be straw-yellow, yellow-green, or yellow-gold coloured. It is produced by the alcoholic fermentation of the non-coloured pulp of grapes, which may have white or black skin. It is treated so as to maintain a yellow transparent colour in the final product.
White wine can be dry, medium-dry and sweet, still or sparkling. Chardonnay is an example of dry white wine. Chardonnay wines are often wider-bodied (and more velvety) than other types of dry whites, with rich citrus (lemon, grapefruit) flavours. They are often paired with fish or chicken.
Riesling white wines are medium dry and as such, they are much lighter than Chardonnay wines. The aromas generally include fresh apples. The Riesling variety expresses itself very differently depending on the district and the winemaking. Rieslings should taste fresh. If they do, then they might also prove tastier and tastier as they age.
Sweet wine is usually classified as ‘dessert wine’, Muscato is a dessert wine. The Moscato variety belongs to the muscat family of grapes –and so do moscatel and Muscat ottonel. Muscat is often sweet and always fruity, with a characteristic grapefruity and musky aroma. Moscato wines are easily recognizable to anyone who has tasted a Muscat table grape.
