A Guide To The Types Of White Wine You’ll See On A Long Island Limousine Tour

April 22, 2010

Sample many types of delicious wine while on a delightful Long Island limousine wine tour.

Last time we discussed the types of red wine you will come across when on a Long Island limousine wine tour. White wine tends to be much sweeter and lighter than most red wines. This makes white wine more popular with people who aren’t usually big wine drinkers. White wine can be dry or sweet and some varieties can be made bubbly or still. Here is an outline of the most common types of white wine so you will know what to expect on your Long Island limousine tour.

  • Chardonnay: This was the most popular white grape in the 1990s, and can be made sparkling or still. It is nice to pair with fish or chicken dishes and is a wide-bodied wine with rich citrus flavors. When it is fermented in new oak barrels it adds a buttery flavor of vanilla, toast, coconut and toffee.
  • Pinot Grigio: This wine is a little dryer, but has a pleasant fruity flavor that improves after a few years in the bottle. It’s very versatile and can be paired with many different dishes.
  • Riesling: Riesling can be dry or sweet, but is generally much lighter than Chardonnay. It has a fresh taste with a hint of apples, and the flavor improves greatly with age. Dry versions of Riesling pair well with meals that contain fish, chicken and pork.
  • Sauvignon Blanc: This wine is great with seafood, poultry and salads. It’s flavor usually consists of apples, pears and gooseberries or tropical fruits like melon, mango and blackcurrant.
  • Muscat: This wine is best on its own, without being paired with food. It generally has a sweet and fruity taste.

These white wines are light and fruity, perfect for a spring or summer afternoon in the country. Now when you are on your next Long Island limousine wine tour, you’ll be able to know beforehand which wines you will be interested in sampling and you’ll impress your friends with your wine knowledge.
