6 Red Grapes To Get You Started!

by APIUser

 

1. Cabernet Sauvignon

A sophisticated grape, which is an important component of many Bordeaux blends (with Merlot and Cabernet Franc); firm and fruity in Chile, where it offers great value.

2. Malbec

A star grape in Argentina, which makes a rich and luscious wine full of plums and blackberries.

3. Merlot

Smooth and fruity from California; velvety and plummy in Bordeaux, where it is often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

4. Pinot Noir

Wines are generally paler in colour and fresh. Ripe and fruity in Oregon; elegant and complex in Burgundy.

5. Shiraz

Australia’s rich and fruity version is all the rage. In France’s Rhône Valley it is called Syrah and produces elegant, peppery wines.

6. Tempranillo

A Spanish success story - rich and savoury with oaky characters; the dominant grape in Rioja. Food-friendly.
