Red wine is made exclusively from black grapes which are fermented on their skins to produce wines that vary from pale to deep in colour and texturally from light to full-bodied. With no less than 175 red wines online to choose from, we have attempted to make your search that bit simpler by classifying the range into 4 styles: Fresh & Light, Medium Bodied, Full Bodied and Complex. The boldness of red wine will be dictated by the grape variety, the tannin level and the alcohol level. The higher the alcohol level, the bolder (stronger) the wine tends to taste. Wines with lower alcohol and less tannins will be lighter bodied but may display a good fruit intensity. Such is the case with premium Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo, so don’t let the colour of the wine fool you into thinking the wine will lack flavour. The body weight i.e how the wine feels in your mouth is a good indicator of the concentration of fruit as much as alcohol. All our wines are balanced and so even a full-bodied or complex red wine will have a good structure and length, leaving you reaching for a second sip.
