red wine

Buying red wine online: whether you're looking for a strong Barolo, a light Pinot Noir or a spicy Cabernet Sauvignon, you're sure to find it in our large range of wines. In addition to the choice of grapes that are used, red wine also differs from other types of wine such as white wine or rosé wine in terms of how it’s produced. Dark grape varieties are used to produce red wine. The colours in the grape skins give red wine its colour. In addition to the grape variety, the main difference between red wine and white wine lies in the fermentation. When making white wine, the grapes are pressed and then just the juice is fermented while red wine is made by fermenting grape juice that still contains the grapes; their juice, skins and flesh.

Usually the mash fermentation lasts 8 to 14 days. The longer the fermentation, the heavier and stronger the red wine will be. In many red wines, malolactic fermentation takes place after maceration, when bacteria convert intensive malic acid into lactic acid. With white wines, this second fermentation takes place less frequently than with red wines, which is why white wines usually also have more acidity.

Many wines do not consist of just one grape variety. When different varieties are mixed, this is called a blend or cuvée. In France, this is called assemblage.

The most important red wine grape varieties are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Tempranillo, Garnacha, Pinot Noir and Sangiovese. Their main differences are in colour, tannin and sugar content and acidity.

Wine changes its taste and colour during storage. When stored in the bottle, the wine gradually develops its complexity of taste and maturity. Once this peak is reached, it loses its flavour and colour.Both temperature and humidity must be right for optimal storage of wine.The ideal temperature is between 10 and 13 degrees Celsius.
