What a pleasant day to have a good wine pairs up with your favourite meal ! there are many types of wine in the world to satisfy your craving but the most important, you should have a perfect glass of wine to enjoy their aromatic and tannin. In addition to proper serving temperatures, each type of wine requires a specific style of glass for service.
Red wines are made from “black” (red-colored) grapes fermented with the skin included. The skin is what imparts the red color to the wine.
White wine are from either “black” (red-colored) or “white” (green-colored) grapes, fermented without the skin, and are often combined with citrus and spicy flavors.
White wines are usually served cold, with lighter foods such as poultry and fish.
A white wine glass’s bowl will be more U-shaped and upright than that of a red wine glass, allowing the aromas to be released while also maintaining a cooler temperature. The white wine glass style that’s best for younger whites has a slightly larger opening directing the wine to the tip and sides of the tongue to taste its sweetness.
The glass for more mature white wines will be straighter and taller to dispense the wine to the back and sides of the tongue to taste its bolder flavors.
This sweet wines and as the name suggests, they are generally served with dessert. Since there are many dessert wine types, a rule of thumb for choosing a wine is that it must be sweeter than the dessert being eaten.
Fortified wine is a wine that has been blended with a liquor. The liquor most often used for this is Brandy which is essentially just distilled wine. This gives fortified wines a distinct flavor and a higher alcohol content than normal wine – usually at least %15 ABV.
A dessert or fortified wine glass should be smaller to direct the wine to the back of the mouth so the sweetness doesn’t overwhelm. Dessert wines generally have a higher alcohol content, making small dessert wine glasses perfect for a smaller serving. The same rule of thumb applies to sherry and cordial glasses.
