Rosť Wines



Rose Wines

Rose Wines are made from black grapes, which are crushed and fermented with the skins until there is a little color extraction. The wine is drawn off the skins and completes its fermentation at a low temperature. An alternative technique is the Saignee method which is used on de-stalked grapes. These are not crushed but vatted for 12-24 hours, after which the juice is run off (bled) and fermented without skin contact.

There are some exciting styles of rose on the market, including traditional wines such as Tavel and Sancerre Rose, which contrast with the vibrant and fruity examples from the southern hemisphere, such as the Grenache / Shiraz blends from Australia, and Malbec Rose from Argentina.

Rosť should be drunk as a young, juicy, fresh wine. The best examples exhibit flavors of ripe red fruits, but with crisp acidity. They are often good choices to accompany Indian food, salmon fillet and cold meats. Rose offers a freshness that makes it an ideal drink on a hot day.
