The main difference between the manufacture of red and white wine is that the grapes for red wines are fermented in the presence of skins and seeds (maceration), whereas for white wines, these materials are removed after crushing. Although optional, sulfiting agents are added to most U.S. wines. Whether the malolactic reaction is induced or encouraged depends on the grape composition, the style of wine, and the manufacturer's preferences.
