What Makes a Dry Wine Taste So Different Than Sweet Wine?
Tannins and acidity determine a wine’s dryness level. For example, a dry white wine or a dry red wine will have more tannins and higher acidity. On the flip side, a sweet white wine or a sweet red wine will contain fewer tannins and have lower acidity. Sweet wines also contain more residual sugar than dry wines.
How Do Tannins in Wine Affect Its Taste?
Tannins make wine drier and more tart. Besides high acidity, acidic wines often contain a high tannin count. If you don’t like extra dry wine but that’s all you have at home, pair it with salty or fatty foods. The salt and fat will cut through the tannins, decreasing their intensity.
