Wicked Wine Delivery West Auckland
The Designated Driver provides wine delivery West Auckland, offering a wide range of wine from wonderful whites to radiant reds. Centuries ago, people drank wine instead of water to quench their thirst because through the grape fermentation process, germs caused by salmonella and cholera could be killed. Grapes are also the most planted fruit in the entire world! In this blog we will be discussing some of our delicious wines.
Did you know that there are seven main types of white wine? Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Moscato, Pinot Grigio, Gewürztraminer and Riesling. Chardonnay is the most well-known white wine. This type of white wine has a rich fruit/citrus flavour with a heavier body than other white wines. It is also available in both sparkling and still (non-carbonated) form. The Designated Driver’s most popular white wines are from our Yellow Tail range: Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
Research has shown that drinking red wine in small doses is better for you than not drinking at all! Red wine is made from dark-coloured grape varieties, however the actual colour of the wine can range from intense violet which is typical of young wines, through to brick red for mature wines and brown for older red wines. Yellow Tail are also the producer of some of our most popular red wines including their Merlot, Jammy Roo and Shiraz.
Rosé was the first wine created, dating back to around 7000 BC! It was one of the first as it is the most straightforward to make due to its use of the skin contact method which consists of the grape skins remaining in contact with the juice of crushed grapes for 2-20 hours. Some of our delicious rosé wines include Mateus Rosé and Jam Shed Rosé.
