Wine Types

You can buy wine based on its style, aromas, flavours, and tasting notes. Wine bottle labels usually provide the grape name, and a general description of the wines style. By reading the liquor store counter labels and tasting notes online you can learn more about a particular wines character.

There are many different types and styles of wine. Red, White, and Sparkling are the most common types of wine. White wines can include Sparkling, Champagne, Moscato, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Pinot Grigio, and Riesling. Red wines can include Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Malbec, Gamay, and Grenache. They are also Fortified and Dessert Wines. Dessert wines are usually quite sweet, and fortified wines usually have a spirit added to them like whisky or rye.

Blending Grapes

Within white and red wine types, you can have many blended wines. A good example of this is Sparkling wine; as many are made from a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. Grapes are blended most often to add flavour and to give a wine a more unique taste, which may not have been possible with just a single grape variety.

Another good example is Bordeaux red wines from France. They are always blended with merlot and cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc, or both, and also sometimes with malbec. Merlot is usually the larger percentage of wine grape, like 70%.

A wine bottle label or store label may not always say if a wine is blended, but online wine websites can usually provide additional information. The reason why they don't always name all the blend types is that often one of blend grapes may only be a small percentage of the wines overall blend, and winemakers are not required by law to list all the smaller percentage blends.

Wine Style

A wine style can include its type of body and its sweetness. Typical bodies are Rich, Complex, Smooth, Medium, Full, Round, Light, Fruity, Crisp. Sweetness can include: Brut(XDry), Dry, Semi Dry, Semi Sweet, Sweet, Xtra Sweet.

Wine Drinking Temperature

Drinking wine at the proper temperature is imperative to tasting the best of your wines tannins, aromas, and flavours. Generally speaking, red wines are served at almost room temperature, white wines at fridge temperature, and sparkling wines and champagne are served ice cold.

Online Wine Resources

Finding information about a wine you want to try or heard was good to try is pretty easy to do for many wines. There are many websites about wine tasting and that provide tasting notes. In particular for tasting notes you want websites that provide tasting notes from recognized tasters usually by way of a wine score that usually includes a short description of their review of a particular wine.

Although a wine`s score isn`t the decisive factor for a wine`s drinkability, it usually is a good indicator of a wine`s overall character. But ultimately, it depends on your preferred taste. That is why a wine`s style, flavours, aromas, and tasting notes together are good to know.

In Canada, the LCBO.com (Liquor Control Board Ontario) has a comprehensive website with wine tasting notes, reviews, and wine scores for many of its wines.
