What’s the best red wine? You’ve probably asked yourself this question a dozen times before. But how do you make that judgment call? The problem with wine recommendations is that they’re often very subjective. What works for one person won’t necessarily work for another, which leaves you with a tricky dilemma.
A “great" red wine depends on personal taste. To choose the perfect wine for your palate, it’s recommended that you try out as many grape varietals as possible, to discover the style of wine that you prefer, depending on the level of tannins, alcohol percentage, the body, flavour profile and complexity. Through the fermentation process, grape skins are left in the tank along with the juice. Barrels and bottles ageing also play an important role in the winemaking process which affects the way a wine matures. It’s the nature of these processes and the quality of the grapes that will have the biggest effect on the flavour and character of the wines.
Pinot Noir is the perfect red wine for understanding acidity. If you like Pinot Noir Red Wine, the chances are you’ll enjoy other highly acidic red wines such as Grenache Red Wine. It pairs well with lean meats such as pork, duck, dark meat chicken or even salmon - this red wine’s light- to medium-bodied texture and soft tannins make it better for foods with less fat in them.
The structure of the wine is also important. Red wine tends to be heavier-bodied than white because of their composition, but each varies according to its origins. Syrah red wine or Shiraz red wine (as the New World likes to call it) is an excellent example of a full-bodied red wine. If this hits the spot, we recommend you try Malbec red wine for a similar wine tasting experience. These wines pair well with lamb, barbecued pork, spicy grilled pork, sausage-stuffed mushrooms, or burgers with blue cheese or lean, spicy, or super flavorful dishes.
Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wine is a notoriously tannic wine, which leaves your mouth feeling dry when you swallow. It’s perennially popular in the wine-drinking world, because of its rich, spicy flavour and complementary pairing with rich red meat like beef steaks or grilled burgers - this red wine’s full-bodied texture, strong tannins, and long finish make it an ideal match for savory dishes with a good amount of fat. If you like Cabernet Sauvignon red wine, you’ll also enjoy Merlot red wine, Sangiovese red wine and Rioja red wine, which have similar qualities.
Most red wines are high in alcohol, but Zinfandel Red Wine is one of the highest. A good bottle is around 15% ABV (the upper end of the scale). The high alcohol content causes Zinfandel to feel ‘bold’ and ‘full’ or, in other words, more intense. Fortified wines such as port wines have a high ABV as well, up to 20% !
Bordeaux red wine is regarded as some of the finest and most prestigious French red wine brands in the world, typically produced from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and with lesser inclusion of Petit Verdot and Malbec.
Don’t compromise on quality, the best wines hold all their flavours in balance. If it’s fruity, earthy, and well-structured, you’re on to a winner.
