Did you know that the alcohol content of wine is directly proportional to the sugar present in the grapes used? More the amount of sugar, greater the potential of alcohol in wine during fermentation. The grapes used for high alcohol white wines are picked late as the sugar content in them is high. These ripe grapes undergo the process of fermentation and the sugar in them converts into alcohol. The high alcohol white wines have more than 13.5% of ABV or alcohol by volume. Some of the best white wines with high alcohol content are Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, and Viognier. You can pair these wines best with rich and flavoured seafood like fish made in a creamy sauce, salmon, or lobster. They also go well with seafood risotto or creamy pasta, fresh salads and seasonal vegetables. For that matter, they also help balance the spiciness of Asian cuisine. You can also try these wines with calamari, crab, and oysters.
