WINE – ORIGINS, STANDARDS, STYLES, FLAVORS
Of all mass produced alcoholic drinks, wine is perhaps the most celebrated. No other alcohol has received as much attention. Its ceremonial, religious and cultural symbolism dates back centuries and shows no signs of diminishing. There are too many aspects of wine culture, production and varietals to give them all the respect they deserve. Here we will do our best to cover the major topics and aspects needed for a well-rounded understanding of the topic.
Usually produced from fermented grapes but can be produced from other fruits as well. It may seem amazing, but grapes have a natural chemical balance which allows them to ferment and turn into wine all by themselves. One does not need to add any enzymes, sugars, acids, or any other nutrients because ripe grapes contain sugar and yeasts are present on the skin of grapes.
Once grapes are broken open by pressing, the sugars present in grape juice are exposed to the yeast on the grape’s skin. The yeast cells begin consuming the sugar and thus create alcohol [wine] and CO2 as a by-product. Fermentation will persist until all sugars are converted into alcohol or the alcohol content reaches 14-15% (Yeast dies off when the level of alcohol is around 14-15%).
