White Wine vs. Red Wine
White wine is very different from its red counterpart. How precisely does it differ?
First of all, white wine is made from white grapes that don’t have any red or purple color matter on their skins, such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, or Pinot Grigio. Secondly, winemakers use different vinification techniques to make white wine; grape skins are pressed from the juice, and fermentation occurs with no skin contact, resulting in a light color, no astringency, and much lighter weight. Does this mean white wine is flat and simple? Not necessarily! Winemakers have various techniques to extract the best from each and every grape.
