Inspiration for this post came while I sipped on a glass of my favourite white wine. Have you ever wondered what different types of wine are out there? Check out this guide to 6 types of wine!
1. Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine is derieved from full-bodied red grapes. It is flavored with bold tannins. (Describe). Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with flavorful meats (e.g. Lamb, smoked meats) and firm cheeses (e.g. Aged cheddar)
A full-bodied wine with intense fruit flavors. Shiraz often has a meaty quality. It pairs with beef, lamb, and firm cheeses.
White Zinfandel is my personal favourite. Flavor notes are aromatic, exotic fruits (e.g. Strawberry, lemon)
4. Pinot Noir
A light-bodied red wine with high acidity. It is dry wine with tasting notes of red fruits. It pairs with chicken, pork, and cream sauces.
Chardonnay is a dry, full-bodied white wine. Two subtypes of chardonnay:
- Unoaked: Unoaked chardonnay has a lighter flavor profile. Ir is zesty with apple and citrus notes.
- Oaked: An oaked chardonnay will contain spicier notes.
Chardonnay pairs with seafood, chicken, pork and cream sauces.
Reisling is a white wine that is floral. It contains notes of cirtus and stone fruit (e.g. Peach). Reisling is aromatic with variable sweetness. Pairings include chicken, turkey, fondue, and Thai cuisine.
