SOCIAL WINE

This is a type introduced by the amateur winemaker, for drinking on social occasions and often unaccompanied by food.
The wine should be smooth and well-balanced, and leave the palate clean. With a recommended alcohol content between 10% and 15%, it is usually medium sweet or sweet. Medium sweet social wines are more highly flavoured than table wines but less so than after-dinner wines.
Colour varies considerably, depending on the ingredients.
