Red wines are made from black-skinned and red-skinned grape varieties in every wine producing country on earth. They are made from the genus vitis-vinifera. It is only the anthocyanins in the skins of red wine grapes that contain the colour. The pulp is clear so the red colour is acquired through skin contact during or before the fermentation process. The skins of red grape varieties generally contain higher levels of tannins compared to that of most white grape varieties, which give a more drying mouth-feel to the wine.
Red wines can come in a range of styles from light through to full bodied, simple to complex, elegant to muscular, fruity to savoury, and everything inbetween.
