Fine Rose WineRose wine is produced in a number of different ways across the world. The most commonly used method is maceration: where grapes are pressed and left to sit in their skins. This method is used for red wine production, the longer the grapes are left, the darker their colour. To produce rose, the grapes are left for a far shorter length of time, so their colour isn’t overly darkened.
From the light, grapefruit colour of a Pinot Noir to brighter pinks of a Grenache, the different varieties of colour result in a diverse range of rose wine flavours. The most common rose wine type is dry: typically produced from a blend of two or three grape varieties. Typical grape blends for a dry rose include Sangiovese, Syrah, Mourvedre and more. For sweet rose wine varieties, Zinfandel, Merlot and Muscat grapes are generally used.
