White Wine

Welcome to High Quality Store White Wine Collection

You probably know the following scenario: You come home from a long day at work and just want to lie down on your couch. Of course, a glass of white wine should not be missing! Whether it's fish, delicious pasta or simply relaxing on the couch - white wine always works. But which variety is the right one and, above all, which white wine goes with which dish?

Which white wine varieties are there?

White wines have spread their vineyards all over the world nowadays. Unlike red wine, however, white grapes are not dependent on heat and sun and are therefore grown mainly in cooler climates. In Europe, especially in Germany and Luxembourg, the proportion of white grape varieties is well over 50 percent. As a rule, one differentiates between the dry and sweet grape varieties, whereby the dry ones must have a sugar content under 4 grams. The dry grape varieties include, for example, the French Chardonnay and the Sauvignon Blanc. Sweet or sweet white wine varieties, however, usually contain aromas of apricots or apples and thus an increased sugar content. These include, for example, the popular, German Riesling or Pinot Gris from Rheinhessen.

Which dishes to white wine?

The best combination is still white wine and fish. Especially in the summer months, this duo is welcome. But pay attention to which white wine you choose to fish. In general, the selected white wine should have a low tannin content, since a high tannin content with the light protein from the fish is difficult to handle. It is best to combine a light Riesling with a fine citrus aroma or Pinot Noir. If you want to grill and look for the right white wine, it is recommended for a stronger flavor. A dry Chardonnay goes well with grilled vegetables and marinated meat. As the white wine is a true all-rounder, it even goes well with Asian dishes. The spicy aroma of chilli and ginger can be soothed by a sweet Riesling. For less spicy dishes fits a classic Sauvignon Blanc best.
