Red wines are made from dark skinned wine grapes. There are thousands of red grapes grown around the world, but commonly seen red grapes (also called noble varietals) include Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot and Pinot Noir. An interesting fact about red wine is that the red colour in wine does not come from the grape juice, which is clear, but from the skin of the grape. After crushing the grapes, the skins are soaked in the must for the colour to be imparted to the juice. Besides colour, grape skin also has tannins, which are great for preserving the shelf life of the wine, but give it a rough texture. Tannins soften with extended cellaring. This is why red wines may feel rough sometimes when drunk young but feel smooth when drunk after a few years in the bottle.
Red wines are best served at temperatures between 12-18 degrees depending on how heavy they are. Light fruity reds like Pinot Noir and Gamay should be served at cooler temperatures whereas fuller bodied ones like Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz are better at higher temperatures.
