Choose Your Top Wine – PART 1
Wine Grapes Flavor
The best way to determine what a wine will taste like is by looking at the grape variety from which it’s made. This is where the main flavor comes from. Wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon tastes like black currant, Chardonnay like citrus, Merlot like cherry, and so on. A wine takes on additional nuances depending on where the grapes were grown and the winemaking techniques used, but the fundamental flavor of the grape variety remains the same.
The table below shows what the world’s major red grape varieties taste like once they’ve been made into wine.
