What are the Actual Differences Between Red and White Wine?
Yes, one’s red and one’s white. But, simple colors aside, do you know the real differences between red and white wine? What makes their flavors unique and distinct? Also, what actually causes them to have different colors and flavors? There are several key differences that produce the variety of reds and whites that you’ll find at your nearby bars and restaurants. Stick with us, and you’ll learn about a few of the factors that influence just how your glass of wine comes into existence:
Some Differences are Skin Deep
The most apparent factor that determines the variety of wine that will be created is the type of grape used in fermentation. Along with the type of grape, the presence or absence of the grape skin during fermentation has a large influence on the wine that develops. White wine is typically fermented from white grapes, which might seem obvious. What’s not as obvious is the fact that the grape skin is removed prior to fermentation when white wine is the end goal of the fermentation process. Grapes are put through a press, which takes off the skins, before fermentation starts. When red wine is being produced, purple or black grapes are used for fermentation. Additionally, the fermentation process of red wine involves leaving the grape skins on. This means that fermentation usually happens prior to the grapes being pressed. The addition of grape skins and the darker color of the grapes being fermented for the production of red wine brings out a much deeper color in the final product.
As you might well imagine, the differences in the fermentation process for different types of wine bring about some variation in their health benefits as well. Overall, red wine boasts more health benefits for the partaker. The reason behind this disparity goes back to the presence (or absence) of the skin of the grapes involved in fermentation. Grape skins are packed with some notable antioxidants, which pack quite a health punch. These powerful antioxidants and the polyphenols that accompany them in red wine can reduce the likelihood of heart disease. They have also been highlighted as agents that can reduce LDL cholesterol, increase HDL cholesterol and prevent the growth of cancer cells. Red wine, and the antioxidants within, can also reduce your chances of blood clots and gallstones. It is, however, important to note that red and white wine have about the same amounts of other nutrients when antioxidants and polyphenols are not taken into account.
