Red Wine is an alcoholic beverage typically made of fermented red grape juice.  Its colour can be derived from a range of grape varietals that are reddish, deep purple, and even a blue on the colour scale. These grapes give rise to a wine that is colour classified with such descriptors as garnet, almost black, dark red, light red, ruby red, opaque purple, deep violet, maroon and the list goes on. As with all wines, winemaker decides of the style of wine he will produce. Red wines are often classified by “body-type”. A light-bodied wine will have fewer tannins present and less presence on the palate. These wines tend to be less demanding partners with flavour-filled foods. The best examples are Beaujolais and Pinot Noir from Cotes de Beaune. A medium-bodied red wine will contain more tannins than the above Beaujolais, moderate texture. Typical example of medium-bodied red wines is Merlot from Chile. Full-bodied red wines boast the highest tannin (and often alcohol) content. Prime examples of full-bodied reds are France’s esteemed Bordeaux wines, California’s key Cabernet Sauvignon and Italy’s sizzling Super Tuscans.
