Originating from various wine-producing regions globally, rosé wine has a unique charm that has gained traction among enthusiasts and casual drinkers alike. Unlike red and white wines that have distinct fermentation processes, rosé occupies a delicate middle ground. It is typically produced by allowing grape skins to remain in contact with the juice for a short time, giving it its characteristic pink hue. The duration of this contact determines the wine's depth of color and, to some extent, its flavor profile. The beauty of rosé lies in its versatility. With a spectrum ranging from pale salmon to vibrant cherry, its visual appeal is undeniable. On the palate, it can vary from dry to sweet, accommodating a myriad of taste preferences. Furthermore, the aromatic profile of rosé wines often carries notes of red fruit, citrus, and floral undertones, making it an ideal companion for a variety of culinary delights. The allure of rosé goes beyond its color and taste; it embodies the essence of fleeting moments, sunny days, and joyful gatherings.
Rose wine is made from red grapes, but with a shorter period of skin contact during the fermentation process than red wine production — the grape skin’s pigments taint the wine. This results in a wine that has a pink or light red colour and a lighter body than red wine. Rosé wine can be made in various styles, from dry to sweet, still or sparkling. The flavour profile of rosé can vary depending on the grape variety used, but it often has notes of red fruit, citrus and floral scents.
Rose wine has become increasingly popular in the past few decades, and it’s now produced in every winemaking country. The category’s quality is generally above-average — rosé hardly disappoints. The most acclaimed rosé wine, Provence Rosé from France, is amongst the most historical and cherished, but there are others. Pinot Noir rosé from Oregon, Sancerre and New Zealand is famous too. Sangiovese rosé from Italy, and Champagne rosé only a few other examples. Other popular rosé wines include Grenache rosé from Spain and California’s White Zinfandel.
There are several types of rosé wine, each with unique characteristics. Some of the most common types of rosé wine include dry rosé, sweet (and semi-sweet) rosé and sparkling rosé; they can be made with a single variety or a combination of red and sometimes white grapes. Dry rosé is the most common type of rosé wine often made from Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre — warm climate grapes. Sweet rosé is made from grapes left on the vine longer, producing higher sugar content. Sparkling rosé is made using either the traditional Champagne method or the more modern tank or Italian method, and is often made from Pinot Noir.
The best rosé wines are subjective, as everyone’s tastes differ. Some of our catalogue’s most highly rated rose wines include Domaine Royal de Jarras Rosé, Sangre de Toro Rosé, E. Guigal Côtes-du-Rhône Rosé and Domaines Ott Clos Mireille Coeur de Grain’ Rosé. Rosé Champagne is among the best wines in the category, including Laurent-Perrier Cuvee Rosé and Pommery Brut Rosé.
Unlike other wine categories, finding a good bottle or rosé is easy — the quality is overall high, and there are plenty of alternatives. There’s rosé made with almost every grape, in all sweetness levels. Rosé is as easy to enjoy as it is to select, as it always has vibrant acidity and the most beautiful red fruit aromas. We should all have a bottle of pink wine in the fridge!
