A vast collection of wine to savour with friends and family

The world’s still wines from fermented grape juice are divided into two main categories based on the colour of the wine in the glass – red and white. However, the appearance of the wine is not just a reflection of the colour of the fruit on the vine grown in the vineyard, but also an indication of different techniques used to make the wine.

The most important grape for white wines, Chardonnay

Chardonnay is easy to grow and widely planted, its fruit flavours vary greatly depending on where it is grown and winemaking techniques used. For example, in moderate regions like Burgundy (e.g. Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet) it shows white stone fruits and yellow citrus along with savoury notes from the soil. For top Chardonnay, oak ageing is used to add hints of sweet spice and vanilla, adding to the wine’s full body.

An aromatic and extremely popular grape, Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc is more refreshing than Chardonnay and less variable in terms of style. Wines from Sauvignon Blanc show strong notes of green fruits and vegetation (gooseberry, elderflower, bell pepper). In its original home in France’s Loire Valley (Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé) hints of blackcurrant leaf and smokiness can be detected. Interestingly Sauvignon Blanc is blended with another white grape - Sémillon to create Bordeaux white wines.

The most fashionable red grape, Pinot Noir

Perhaps the most fashionable red grape right now is Pinot Noir, the most classic region for which is Burgundy (Bourgogne, Beaune, Gevrey-Chambertin etc). In general wines from Pinot Noir are mid-bodied and show bright red fruits (strawberry, raspberry, cherry) with some animal notes developing (musk, leather). The best examples from premium areas (see also Marlborough in New Zealand, Sonoma County in California) show great complexity in their delicate fruit, hints of spice and toastiness from new oak, along with the ability to further develop over time.

The first grape that comes to mind for red wines, Cabernet Sauvignon

A black grape variety with thick skins used to create deep, dark red wines that are some of the fullest bodied you can find. Oak ageing is used for the better wines to soften the grape’s natural intense structure. The spiritual home of Cabernet Sauvignon remains Bordeaux in France (Haut-Médoc, Pauillac, Margaux) where it is blended with another red grape – Merlot adding lighter fruit and a touch of softness in the blend.
