Wine


For lots of people, a glass of wine is sheer bliss – whether it's accompanying a nice meal or as a drink of choice at a bar. Many have their clear favourites. Some prefer a robust red, others a fresh white, while others still are partial to a sweet rosé. It's worth trying a different wine every so often to explore new flavours and aromas. You can choose from a wide range at coop@home and order wines from many different growing areas.


What is the difference between red, white and rosé?


Red wines are made from red grapes, white wines from white grapes and rosé from a mixture of the two, right? Not quite. Rosé is certainly not a mixture and as far as the other two wine varieties are concerned, it is predominantly the winemaking process – known as vinification – that is the distinguishing feature.
 

  • White wine: To produce white wine, the grapes are pressed and the resulting must is fermented into wine. In principle, any grape can be used to make white wine, irrespective of the colour – in addition to white grapes, red and purple grapes are also used.
  • Red wine: Red wine is made from purple grapes. The grapes are not pressed for red wine but instead crushed whole into must, complete with the skin, pulp and juice. The pigments from the grape skins colour the must and give the red wine its characteristic intense colour after the fermentation process.
  • Rosé: Similar to red wine, rosé is produced by means of must fermentation, however the grape skins are removed after a while. You can also buy wines made from a mixture of red and white wine. These are not classed as rosé but rather "Rötling".

 

What can be found on the wine label


Generally speaking, it's not a bad idea to buy wine based on the label – provided you can read it. This is no easy task. In addition to the alcohol content, volume and country of origin, you can also find the following information on the label:

•    the quality level
•    producer and bottler
•    the vineyard where the grapes were grown
•    the vintage
•    whether the wine is sweet or dry
•    the grape variety

The labels list all of this information as a bare minimum. Within these categories, there are also more technical terms that you learn over time. The more you familiarize yourself with different wines, the more you will understand the terminology. Even as a novice, it's worth studying the wine label as it will help you to remember a particularly good wine and means that you can order it again next time.
 

Key wine terms


There is a whole vocabulary of wine tasting terminology. Just like reading the label, the more involved you get with wine, the more you understand. However, there are a few basic terms that are easy to learn and that are useful for gaining a better understanding of wine:
 

  • Decanting: The process of transferring wine to a decanter.
  • Tannin: Tannic acid that can appear to varying degrees in wine.
  • Bouquet: All perceivable aromas in a wine.
  • Character: All aromas and flavours in a wine.
  •  Finish: The textures and flavours that linger in the mouth after swallowing wine.
  •  Body: All the ingredients of a wine aside from water and alcohol.


This list has not yet mentioned terms used to describe wine. These include adjectives such as grassy, fruity and fresh, as well as complex, angular and warm.
