White Wine for LessPage 2 of 6
Understanding white wine
White wine can be very misunderstood. Some people love it, others loathe it. While most wine drinkers are proud to sip on a glass of red wine around dinner, the same cannot be said for white wine drinkers. With summer always approaching, why not delve into white to try and find something you can enjoy when the summer heat hits. Chardonnay is the most popular variety of white wine on Earth, so it’s a fantastic place to start. There are two main camps in Chardonnay, oaked and unoaked. Oaked Chardonnay often has a fuller and richer mouthfeel and would be the most logical step down from a hearty red. Unoaked Chardonnay has none of the vanilla flavors imparted by oak barrels, so you’ll taste more apple and lemon flavors. Another staple of white wine is Sauvignon Blanc. Often referred to as ‘summer in a glass’, New Zealand is the king of Sauv. Their Marlborough region on the South Island is the perfect dry and sunny place to produce very intense flavours. If you’re in the mood to try a white like Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc don’t delay. Remember, the best place to get your white wine online is right here at Catch.

Sweet white wine, Moscato and some Rieslings
So far we’ve mostly touched on Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, but white wine also comes in a few sweeter varieties. Some of the most popular sweet wines are Moscatos. They are very popular with first time drinkers because they are sweet and easy to drink. Another sweet style of wine is Riesling, be warned though, as some of them are the driest wine you can get!
