I’m sure you know a little bit about red and white wines, so today we’re going to cover sweet wines, fortified wines, and ice wines.I. Sweet wines
Sweet wines are sweeter than regular wines. Sweet wines have attractive aromas, complex flavors, velvety textures, and a delicious, memorable finish. There are four main categories of sweet wines: late-picked sweet wines, noble-rotted sweet wines, raisin sweet wines, and ice wines. In addition, Port is a fortified wine, but due to its natural sweetness, we also classify it as a sweet wine. Sweet wines can be enjoyed on their own, with a variety of desserts, or as an aperitif. Of course, different styles of sweet wines can be paired with different desserts to bring out their distinctive flavors.II. Fortified wines
Fortified wines have a higher alcohol content than other table wines and are gaining more market share in Europe, mostly due to the fact that fortified wines are better shipped. This is because even when shipped by sea, these wines rarely have damage problems. There are four famous fortified wines in the world: Madeira Wine from Portugal, Marsala Wine from Italy, Port Wine from Portugal, and Sherry Wine from Spain.
III. Ice Wine
Ice wine is a sweet wine with a very high residual sugar content and an extremely sweet taste. It is made from grapes that have naturally frozen on the vine. Canada and Germany are the 2 largest producers of ice wine in the world. However, analysis of sales data in recent years shows that Canada’s ice wine production far exceeds that of Germany and has become the world’s top ice wine producer.In both the Niagara Peninsula and the Okanagan Valley in Colombia, the grapes used to make ice wine are hand-picked. Because of the cold temperatures, the grapes are frozen on the vine, allowing the grapes to lock in moisture and concentrate sugar, so the resulting wine is very sweet. Generally the grapes must be frozen at -8°C (17°F) before the wine can be called ice wine. In Canada, most ice wine is made from Riesling and Vidal grapes, although sometimes Cabernet Franc is used, which produces a peachy red wine. Ice wine is one of the most expensive wines in the world because of the amount of labor and effort required to produce it, and because of its very low yields. Although ice wine has high acidity, it also has high sugar content, which allows the high sugar content of ice wine to be perfectly balanced with high acidity, a fresh taste and a long finish.
