The versatility of red Wine is one of the reasons why it is so well-loved, and the depth of flavour it has means it is something to be savoured. While it is ideal paired with meats, rich Italian dishes and strong cheeses, a glass of red is also perfect sipped on its own. Made from, water, yeast, sugar and red grapes, red Wine takes much of its flavour from its surroundings.
Grapes grown in different regions will result in different flavour profiles thanks to the difference in soil and temperature. This is also why specific batches of Wine can taste slightly different depending on the years that the grapes were harvested. With tones of rich fruit, pepper, chocolate and spice, each grape variety offers something unique.
Best enjoyed at room temperature; red Wine is worth opening a little while before pouring to allow it to breathe and let the flavours unfurl. Whether a relaxing glass after a long day or a vibrant bottle over dinner with friends, there is a grape to suit every palate.
