Why red wines are red

Red wines are normally red because they are made from red grapes. The diverse colour of the red grapes ranging from purple, deep red, deep blue, pink, blackish, orange, light red or maroon influence the diverse colour of the red wines. So, next time you order wine, take note of the colour of the bottle. The colour of the wine is basically influenced by the skin of the grapes bringing a shade of red to the wine. Just like the other wines, red wines can also be categorized as sweet red wines, dry red wine or sparkling red wine. Red wines turn from sweet to dry depending on the concentration of tannins. The higher the tannins the drier the wine. Tannins increases with the amount of time the skin of grapes is kept with the juice before being extracted.

 

Types of red wines in Kenya

Wines are graded from non-alcoholic wines, light bodies, medium bodies and full bodies Wine body is about how a wine feels in the mouth when you drink it. Alcohol contributes to the wine body by giving the wine its viscosity which influences the light or heavy feeling of the wine in the mouth when sipped.

 

Non- alcoholic wines – these are wines that have zero alcohol percentage. Just like the other red wines, these wines are made from red grapes but they are not fermented to prevent them from being alcoholic. These wines are aimed as celebration drinks for those people who don’t take alcohol like in wedding ceremonies. They also fit in the category of sparkling wines because they are carbonated to make them pop during celebrations. The following are non-alcoholic red wines.

  • Chamdor red
  • Chamdor white
  • Lambrusco Dell’ emilia
  • Pure Heaven
  • Royalty Wine

 

Light bodies wines – these are wines with alcohol percentage below 12.5 %. Most of these wines are good for refreshment and combining with light meals. The following are some light bodied wines in Kenya.

  • Prosecco sparkling wine
  • Cellar Cask
  • 4th Street
  • Four Cousins
  • Robertson Winery

How to serve red wines

Red wines should be served in oval or egg-shaped glass that narrows as it reaches at the top compared to the slim tall glasses used with champagnes. Red wines should always be served at room temperature; when too cold, it will taste bitter and when hot, the alcohol content will be over emphasized. The good thing with the red wines is their compatibility with most food unlike white wines that are generally served with only the light meals. When shopping for red wines, ask for the old ones because they normally taste better. Red wines get better with age as maturity continues due to high concentration of tannins.

Comparison Of Red Wines and White Wines.

Red wines are different from white wines in various aspects rather than the obvious one of the colour. They exhibit different tastes and flavours and also their method of preparation defers a lot. To start with, red wines have richer and deep flavours in comparison to the lighter and fruitier white wines. It is because of their lighter feel, that the white wines pairs well with light food while the red wines pairs with almost every food. In preparation of the wines, red wines are normally fermented with their skins unlike the white wines that must have their skins peeled off before fermenting. The skin of the grapes has the highest concentration of tannins hence making the wine better with age unlike the white wines that losses taste with age due to low concentration of tannins. The skin also taints the red wine with its colour hence giving variations in the colours of the red wines unlike the variations in colour of the white wines that are brought about by the flavours added to make it more fruitier and refreshing. At some point in the fermentation process, the skins of the grapes are removed to prevent tannins from increasing to a higher percentage which might lead increased bitterness of the wine. To enjoy the red wines more, ensure they are at room temperature unlike the white wines that are enjoyed on the rocks. Ensure that you have the right glass depending on the wine that you are drinking. Different wines are drunk with different glasses. For example, red wine glasses are tulip shaped while the champagne glasses are slim and tall.
