Grapes are used in the production of wine, but not the same grapes that are sold in grocery stores as table grapes. Vitis vinifera, more often known as wine grapes, are characterized by thick skins, a sweet flavor, and the presence of seeds.
There are over a thousand distinct varieties of wine grapes, but the following are some of the more popular ones that you'll find at supermarkets and specialty shops.
The Bordeaux area was the first place where the full-bodied red grape known as Cabernet Sauvignon was widely grown. It is now the most widely consumed kind of wine in all of the globe!
The greater amounts of alcohol and tannin that often accompany these wines contribute to the wines' full-bodied nature, which is characterized by assertive tannins and a lengthy, lingering finish.
Syrah, often known as Shiraz, is a full-bodied red wine that is widely grown in the Rhône Valley in France and Australia. Shiraz is an alternate spelling of Syrah. Tannins of medium weight and rich fruit tastes may be found in these wines. Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre are the three grapes that are often combined to make the red Rhône mix. The wine often exhibits a meaty character, such as beef soup or jerky.
Zinfandel, often known as Primitivo, is a kind of red wine with a body similar to that of a medium-bodied Primitivo. The flavors of fruit and spice come forward in the wine, and the finish is of medium length. The Zinfandel grape is really a red variety, but its pink offspring, the White Zinfandel, is perhaps more well-known.
Is there anything that goes better together than cheese and wine? The gourmet meat and cheese sampler is an excellent choice for a wine gift basket since it includes the kinds of appetizers that are ideal for partaking in with wine. As soon as they see this present, their mouth will start to wet, and they will be beyond delighted to crack open a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon or a Bordeaux mix and spread this meat and cheese out on a board to savor.
Whether you like your red wine with sweet or savory foods, this basket has a wide variety of options for you. It was nearly tailor-made for a relaxing evening spent inside, what with its jalapeo Monterey jack cheese, summer sausage, crackers, cheese straws, and chocolate delights, as well as a full-bodied red wine originating from Chile's Colchagua Valley.
What could be better than a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from California, salami, crackers with olive oil and rosemary, and two different types of cheddar (jalapeno and smoked)? This is just what we had in mind for a snack in the afternoon!
