Made from a range of darker coloured grapes, the colour of red wine can vary from an intense violet colour in younger wines through to deep reds for more mature wines and even to almost brown colours for much older wines. The colour of the wine actually comes from the skin and not the juice, the rich coloured grape skins also provide deep flavours.
Red wine is often thought of as being heavy and robust, with stronger more complex flavours than white, this however is not always the case. Red wine can vary wildly depending on where and how it is made, and of course how long it takes to reach the bottle. Traditionally served with big robust meals, slow cooked rich meaty beef dishes are usually accompanied by a great big glass of glistening deep dark red, however more and more reds are being paired with lighter meals such as fish.
