Leading White Wine Types

Slide 4

Chardonnay (Shar-don-nay) The most popular white wine. Tends to be voluptuous, velvety, and dry. Its citrus flavors, like lemon and grapefruit, and fruity melons are complemented with those of its oak barrel fermentation, including rich, creamy, buttery tones and hints of vanilla and toast.

Slide 5

Sauvignon Blanc (So-veen-yawn Blah) Also known as “Fumé Blanc” to highlight the wine’s smoky flavors. Sauvignon Blanc aromas and flavors can be smoky (light), herbal, grassy, with suggestions of bell peppers. It can also run the gamut, from evoking thoughts of unripe fruit, such as pears or apples to tropical fruits, like mangos, melons, and blackcurrants. It is typically a very light wine that tends to be acidic and crisp.

Slide 6

Moscato (Mus-ket-o) It is known by several names, like Muskateller, Muscat Canelli and Muscat Blanc. Has a musky aroma with a citric or grapefruit flavor that is frequently sweet; a very distinct taste.

Slide 7

Pinot Grigio (Pee-know-gree-zo) Known by numerous names: Pinot Grigio (California and Italy), Pinot Gris (Oregon), Malvoisie (France’s Loire Valley), Pinot Gris (in the rest of the France), Grauer Burgunder or Ruländer(Austria). Typically a dry, crisp wine with an acidic bite.

Slide 8

Gewürztraminer (Gah-VERTZ-tra-MEE-ner) Tends to be sweet white wine, which is sometimes dry. The aroma is an interesting mixture of spice and flowers. It is not deemed as lively as other wine types.

Slide 9

Riesling (Rees-ling) Known by many names, such as Weisser Riesling, Riesling Renano, Rheinriesling, and Johannisberg Riesling. Lighter than a Chardonnay. Typically complex and sweet with aromas of fresh apples, florals, and honey. Some are musky and dry.
