The wide variety of white wines comes from the large number of varieties, methods of winemaking, and also the ratio of residual sugar. Among the many types of white wine, dry white wine is the most common. The white grapes from which white wine is mainly produced are green or yellow. The better known single-variety white wine are Chardonnay, Sauvignon, and Riesling. There are more discreet and sophisticated styled ones resulted from the assembly of several varieties and specific winemaking process such as the botrytised Tokaji, the oxidised Sherry, and the sweet Sauternes.
Numerous varieties of grapes with coloured skins can be used to produce white wine too, such as the pink-skinned Gewurztraminer, Pinot gris, black grapes Pinot noir and Pinot Meunier (used for white or rosé champagne).
