The Colour of Wine
Wine colour, particularly red, is one of wine’s most outstanding features and a strong cue to wine style. On the surface it is quite simple, red wines contain red pigments, termed anthocyanins, and white wines don’t. Big wines have a lot of colour, and appear almost black with a purple tinge, whilst a light Beaujolais is quite easy to see through and clearly bright red. However, it is possible to go a bit more in depth into the subject and I will try to do so here, starting by explaining some basic terms and eventually venturing into the complex world of tannins!
