What is the difference between dry white wine and dry red wine?


Dry red and dry white are not only different in wine color, but also different in brewing technology, drinking temperature regulation and nutritional composition. Many people can't understand the concepts of dry red and dry white. So what is the difference between dry white wine and dry red wine?


1. Different brewing processes: dry red wine is made from grapes with red skin and white flesh, or grapes with red skin and fruit flesh. The skin and juice are mixed and fermented, and then separated and aged. Dry white wine is made from white or light skin grapes, and then separated from the skin and juice, and brewed from its pure original juice.

2. Different colors: the most intuitive difference between dry white and dry red lies in the different colors. One is colorless, yellow, slightly yellow, golden yellow or slightly yellow with green, and the other is red, such as purplish red, ruby red, crimson, etc. Dry red and dry white are very different in color. Even if you are not knowledgeable, you can distinguish them at a glance.

3. Different nutritional values: the nutritional components of dry red, such as vitamin B, nicotinic acid and polygenic acid, are higher than those of dry white. Dry white is brewed with pure juice, and the content of tannin is obviously low. Dry red is brewed by mixing fruit juice with peel, and its tannin content is much higher. The stability of dry red is better than that of dry white, and the taste period is relatively long.

4. Different taste; Dry red tastes sweet and pleasant. It is sweet and sour at the same time. Dry white has high sugar content and slightly high acidity, but there is no astringency. It has pure taste, and the sweet and sour fruit flavor is more refreshing. The two dry red flavors have their own characteristics. As for who is better to drink, it depends on the preferences of the people who taste it.

5. Different temperatures when drinking: dry red is suitable for tasting at 16 ℃ - 18 ℃, and dry white is more suitable for drinking when it is cool. Usually, the taste is the best when the room temperature is between 8 ℃ and 10 ℃. For the advantage of temperature, dry red is slightly better and more convenient to store, while dry white is relatively at a disadvantage.
