If you’d like to know how to easily tell the difference between a medium and full-bodied or a young and an old wine on sight, then this is the infographic for you.
This wine colour chart from Wine Folly (who you may remember also produce some pretty great wine region maps), helpfully details the differences in core colour and opaqueness, and the rim width of red and white wines of varying body (the feel of the wine in your mouth), and also shows how wine colour dulls over time.
This is a pretty useful basic guide for anyone looking to become, or at least appear, something of a wine buff, or perhaps you’re thinking about starting a wine collection and want to know which wines age well?
