Lowdown On Wines

Those who love wine probably know everything about it. But if you don't know anything about it and remain mystified by this drink, a few more information about this is certainly appreciated. To start, red wine and white wine are the two types of wine.

Red Wine

Syrah or Shiraz is a type of grape that is used to make a certain kind of red wine. This can be used as varietal or can be blended. This has been reported to be one of the worlds most popular grape. Syrah grapes are mostly grown in California, Australia, and France's Rhone Valley and are great to pair with steaks and stews.

A different type of grape used to make wines and considered to be one of the most popular varietal types and considered the 3rd most grown grape variety around the world especially in the wine industry is the Merlot. Wines made from merlot are often regarded as beginners' wine and are good to pair with any kind of food. In comparison to those of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot wines are also known to be less tannic or rough.

White Wine

Chardonnay, regarded to be the queen of white wine grapes is very versatile. When compared to other types of wines, this can produce a more complex type of wine.

Chenin Blanc - This is one of the oldest types of grapes grown over the area of Loire Valley in France. Today, this type of grape is widely grown in California where it is mostly used in jug wines or sometimes in inexpensive table wines. Generally, Chenin Blanc is light and fruity on the taste buds.

Sauvignon Blanc or Fume Blanc - This is mostly grown around the areas of Loire and Bordeaux regions in France and also in California, New Zealand and even in some parts in South Africa. It is very well-known for its light and crisp, acidic taste. It normally has an herbal character, smelling like bell pepper or a newly mown grass. It is best served with a mixture of Semillion from France.

Those are some of the most famous types of wine. There are still several types available out there and each of them has unique characteristics.
