Sauvignon Blanc wine toasting

White Wine Season Is Upon us, What’s Your Favourite?

White wine can be made from a variety of different grapes, and each type has its own unique flavor. There are the sweet types like dessert wines that you might enjoy on their own or as an addition to another drink - these include things such as chardonnay with pearls for creamy notes in your glass along side light citrus flavors thanks largely due it being filled out by other fruits too including apple which gives off refreshing hints after just one sip!

For those looking to build their home wine collection, here are a few great options.

Sauvignon Blanc is the most popular grape used to produce white wines. It has a flavor that people either love or hate, with its green color coming from being exposed during winemaking processes such as destemming (for those who prefer) and milling before fermentation starts off flavors like noblesse oblige but also getting more intense depending on how long it spends aging in barrel before releasing their wares into society! 

Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, dry white wine with high acidity. It originated in the Bordeaux region of France but is now produced all over the world. Sauvignon Blanc typically has a lower alcohol content than other wines, making it a refreshing choice for summertime sipping. The wine is usually pale straw in color, with greenish hues. Sauvignon Blanc is known for its fruity aromas and flavors, including notes of grapefruit, passionfruit, and gooseberry. The wine can be enjoyed on its own or paired with light dishes such as salads or seafood. For a truly memorable experience, try pairing Sauvignon Blanc with a plate of fresh oysters. Salty and briny, oysters are the perfect complement to this refreshing white wine.

Pinot Grigio uses just two varieties; however they're both very generic - you'll find this same combo anywhere from Italy all the way down south through France--to make what many would consider an "everyday" Chardonnay which falls somewhere between elegant yet simple. 

For many wine lovers, Pinot Grigio is the perfect choice. This light-bodied white wine has a subtle sweetness and a crisp, refreshing flavor. It originated in the Burgundy region of France, but today it is produced in many other regions around the world.

Chardonnay is a white wine that originates from the Burgundy region of France. It is made from the Chardonnay grape, and it is one of the most popular types of wine in the world. Chardonnays vary in taste, depending on the make and vintage, but they are typically dry with high acidity. They often have fruity notes of apple, pear, or citrus, and they can be aged in oak barrels, which gives them a buttery flavor. 

Chardonnays typically have an alcohol content of 12-14%. When pairing food with Chardonnay, it is important to consider the wine's weight and body. Lighter-bodied This  drink is best suited for delicate food like fish or chicken, while fuller-bodied varieties can handle heartier dishes like steak or lamb. Regardless of the body, all Chardonnays pair well with cheese.

With the white season comes a new era for Chardonnay. There are so many different varieties to choose from and all seem great in their own way, but if we had our say on what would be best then it's easy - rubrics win out! These wines will give you plenty of spice with subtle hints of lemon zestiness that can pair beautifully against your favorite seafood or game meat dish while still being light enough not overpowering whatsoever.

Pinot Gris has an alcohol content of 12-13% and typically has flavors of citrus, melon, and stone fruit. When choosing a food to pair with Pinot Gris, look for something with similar flavors or a light cream sauce. grilled chicken or salmon, pasta with a light cream sauce, or roasted vegetables are all good choices.

With its cone-like shape, it's not hard to see how the grape bunch of Pinot Grigio became known as a "pine cone." This name comes from an old French term for what we call Pine Cones today - namely since they were first cultivated in Italy around 600 AD and used primarily by royalty. 

Pinot Gris VS. Pinot Grigio

You may have heard that Pinot Gris is the same as or similar to white wine, but it's actually a different variety. While both types come from grapes and have been around since medieval times when they were used for medicinal purposes rather than drinking pleasure; there are some key differences between them which will help you decide what might suit your taste better! For example:

The flavor profile in general (floral/fruitier) tends towards Pinot.  Wherever possible try not buy this type if seafood dishes because its delicate nature won't hold up well against other flavor

Moscato is a type of wine that originates from the Piedmont region of Italy. It is made from the Muscat grape, which is known for its characteristic sweetness. Moscato wines are typically low in alcohol content and have a light, refreshing flavor. They are often served as an aperitif or as a dessert wine. 

When pairing Moscato with food, it is best to avoid dishes that are too heavy or spicy, as these can overwhelm the delicate flavors of the wine. Instead, opt for lighter fare such as fruit salad or baked chicken. For a truly indulgent experience, pair Moscato with a plate of fresh strawberries or blueberries. The sweetness of the fruit will highlight the inherent sweetness of the wine, creating a delicious and harmonious flavor profile.
