When the sound of Chardonnay being poured into your glass is music to your ears, and you drool over the sweet aroma of Riesling — you've reached the ultimate white wine-loving status. In my opinion, white wine doesn't get enough credit when it's compared to the luscious reds many people love. But the white wine drinker definitely wants you to know a few things before you pass on the pinot.
White wine has a tendency of being light, but that doesn't mean the party isn't getting started. Like reds, white wines have the potential to pull different notes from foods, like cheeses and fish. It really just depends on which white wine you're into or are willing to give a try.
Reds and whites — a wine feud that will never subside because most sippers are convinced their wine is the unicorn of all wines. You can't go wrong with either, though, because wine is wine. Any wino can attest to the sound of any bottle — red or white — popping open as pure harmonious joy. For the white wine lover specifically, it's time to set the record straight just a tad. So, for the sake of sauvignon blanc and the rest of the gang, there a few things the white wine drinking friend wants you to know.
