White wine is a wine that is fermented without skin contact. It is produced by the alcoholic fermentation of the non-colored pulp of grapes, which may have a skin of any color.
The wide variety of white wines comes from the large number of varieties, methods of winemaking, and ratios of residual sugar. White wine is mainly from "white" grapes, which are green or yellow in color, such as the Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc and Riesling. Some white wine is also made from grapes with colored skin, provided that the obtained wort is not stained. Pinot noir, for example, is commonly used to produce champagne.
Among the many types of white wine, dry white wine is the most common. More or less aromatic and tangy, it is derived from the complete fermentation of the wort. Sweet wines, on the other hand, are produced by interrupting the fermentation before all the grape sugars are converted into alcohol; this is called Mutage or fortification. The methods of enriching wort with sugar are multiple: on-ripening on the vine, passerillage (straining), or the use of noble rot. Sparkling wines, which are mostly white, are wines where the carbon dioxide from the fermentation is kept dissolved in the wine and becomes gas when the bottle is opened.
White wines are often used as an apéritif before a meal, with dessert, or as a refreshing drink between meals. White wines are often considered more refreshing and lighter in both style and taste than the majority of their red wine counterparts. Due to their acidity, aroma and ability to soften meat and deglaze cooking juices, white wines are often used in cooking.
The top white wine varietals that you are likely to encounter are Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Moscato (which we talk more about in Sparkling Wines), Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Chenin Blanc, Semillon and Cortese.
