EXOTIC INDIAN FRUIT for WINES
Introduction: Wine is fermented juice of grapes, berries or fruits. Most of the wine in the world is produced from the grapes. During wine production the sugars are fermented into alcohol and carbon dioxide.
These can be manufactured from
- Jack Fruit
- Cashew Fruit
Red Wine is made by crushing grape of purple or red varieties and allowing skin, pulp and seeds to remain with juice during fermentation period. White wines are made from pigmented grapes by removal of skins, pulp and seed before juice fermentation.
Wines might be "fortified," "table," or "sparkling." In fortified wines, alcohol is added to raise the alcohol content (around 14 to 30 percent). These are less perishable and may be stable without pasteurization. Wines are termed table/still or sparkling depending upon the amount of CO2 they contain. The carbon dioxide may be formed naturally during fermentation or may be added artificially. Both table and sparkling wines tend to have alcohol contents between 7 and 14 percent. Sparkling wines are the ones which emit bubbles (greater CO2), like Champagne. Table wine is the most commonly consumed wine in the world. The term “light wine” is used to describe wine having alcohol content from 5-10 %.
