Born from the gentle embrace of pale grapes, white wine exudes charm, sophistication, and grace. The yin to the yang of its red counterpart, though white wine has tannins, here they don't steal the show; instead, it's the refreshing acidity that takes centre stage: crisp, bright, and delightfully aromatic. If red wine is Clooney, then white is Coppola: a cult classic.
Drinking wine should be fun, not intimidating. Use this guide to charm your mates, flirt with the bartender, or never doubt yourself in a bottle shop again.
White wine is made from the juice of green or yellow grapes, or sometimes from red or black grapes with minimal skin contact. The winemaking process involves gently pressing the grapes to separate the juice from the skins, preventing colour extraction.
White wine offers a kaleidoscope of colours, ranging from pale straw to golden yellow, depending on the grape variety and winemaking techniques.
Some popular white grape varieties include Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Grigio (Pinot Gris), and Chenin Blanc.
White wine is naturally moreish; with hallmark notes of zesty citrus, tropical fruits, delicate florals, and mineral notes. Lemon, lime, peach, apple, pear, melon, and subtle herbs might feature on the nose.
White wines are generally known for their refreshing acidity, which adds liveliness and a crisp, bright quality to the wine. The balance between sweetness and acidity varies, with some wines being dry, off-dry, or slightly sweet.
White wine is best served chilled, as cooler temperatures accentuate its refreshing qualities and fruit flavours. The ideal serving temperature depends on the wine type, with lighter wines served colder than fuller-bodied ones.
The queen of versatility, white wine pairs well with everything from fresh seafood to creamy pastas. We like to drink ours with fish tacos, spicy curries, mum's roast chicken, popcorn and cheese.
Inherently drinkable, moreish, and bright, its heavyweight champions are famously cool-climate, with each varietal boasting its unique winemaking heritage.
