Many people think that white wine is made only from white grapes and that is the first big mistake. That color of white wine that can vary from a light yellow to a golden yellow comes from the pulp, but there are some black grapes also used in the making of this wine.
White wine is produced in many parts of the world and with quite different characteristics from one area to another because many varieties of grapes with different characteristics of flavor and color are used. For example, among the white grape varieties used to make white wine, the chardonnay, sauvignon and riesling grapes are well known. In the black grapes used to make white wine, the Pinot Noir variety stands out.
Depending on the expert you use as a reference, the classification of white wines can be more or less detailed. In this case, let’s talk about :
Aromatic white wines: They are usually made from varieties such as Moscatel, E blanc, Gewürztraminer as well as Galician white grape varieties.
Full-bodied white wines: This type of wine has a stronger taste not only because of the type of grape used in its production but also because they are wines with some degree of aging.
Lighter white wines: they are not as soft as the aromatic ones but they do not have the body of the previous ones. They offer an intermediate point between the outstanding aroma of the former and the body of the latter.
Sparkling white wines: A wine is said to be sparkling when, in addition to the bubbles, serving them creates foam. They are wines that are a little acidic, and if they are made with a variety of black grapes then the knowledge is more forceful.
Obviously the best-known sparkling wines are Champagne and Cava, but they are not the only ones, in France, Germany and even in America high quality sparkling wines are produced.
