Understanding Dry Wines Characteristics

Aug 17, 2007
There are many people who love drinking a glass of vino for social occasions with their food and because they just like the taste of wine. Of course we can identify many other reasons for a glass of wine, but these are the two most well known reasons to talk about. Many of these people would prefer to have a red wine or a white wine. Still others will drink sweet wines or dry wines. While all of these people will merrily enjoy the taste of their wine, many of them will have no idea if they are truly drinking the proper variety. Today, wine comes in many varieties and tastes. How do we know which one is the one we would like?

As there are so many different brands of wine that you can purchase it pays to have an idea of the types of vino that you like. It can become very expensive trying out all different kinds of wine to find the one that is right for you. However, if this has become a social piece of your life, well then, don't give it up. While there are assorted vino guides that can help you out with this problem the best way for you to get acquainted with good dry wines or other wines is to taste them yourself. When you have found a way of identifying the taste of these wines you will have an idea of which wines you should choose. You certainly should know by then which class the wines that you like are in. Makes it a bit easier when you are out to dinner with friends and the wine list is larger than the menu.

According to many wine guides, dry wines are wines with no residual sugar taste sensation in them. When you drink a good dry vino you will be able to taste the other flavors that are present in the wine. Many times you will notice the robust flavors in the dry wines. You will also be able to smell the aroma of sweetness in the wine without acquiring any sugary taste when you drink the dry wines. Since wines are usually divided up into red wines and white wines you will notice that there are ways that you can identify with what are the dry wines in these categories. Once you started to identify with the flavors it becomes easier to know what wines will taste like.

In red wines the tannin, which is in the wine, will make your mouth pucker somewhat and you will feel a sensation of dryness on your tongue. These identifying marks are good ways for you to be able to distinguish dry wines from other types of wines. The best dry wines that are in the red wine class include - Zinfandel, Bordeaux, Co'tes-du-Rho'ne and Pinot Noir among others. The list can and in many places go on forever. Just know and start to relate to the flavors and aroma of each class of wine.

While it is easy to distinguish the assorted red wines, it is somewhat more difficult to say the identifying marks with white wines. Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Riesling are reasoned to be great white wines that can be called dry wines. This is not to confuse you, but to let you know that dry wines are also found in the white wine category.

When you have revealed the various different tastes you will be able to select the dry wines that you want to buy. There is one main point that you should keep in mind. Even though these are all dry wines they will have elusive flavors that give them their distinguishing tastes. And even though they are in the red wine category their flavors will sometimes vary considerably.

For this reason when you are looking to purchase a good dry vino you should start with the brands that have stood that test of time and are considered as true dry wines. Only then will you be able to appreciate the good dry wines. Remember, it is the journey of experiencing the different tastes, flavors and aroma of these wines that count. So, enjoy yourself and don't be afraid to try all the wines that you can.
