Rosé gets its name as a result of its reddish color. Although wine grapes produce a nearly clear liquid, the wine gets its color from the skin of the grapes. This process is how red wine gets its color too, but making rosé involves removing the skins after a couple days of contact rather than leaving them in the wine throughout fermentation.
Don't judge a wine by its color. Rosé comes in several varieties with the misconception that all are sweet and fruity. This characterization is true for some rosé wines. The typical profile of a rosé includes fruity tones like melon, peach, berries, hibiscus and cherry, but can also feature olive or peppery tones. Some dryer, more robust rosé can be paired with a good burger or a pepperoni pizza. The versatile nature of rosé makes it a good wine to serve as a backdrop for your meal rather than the main event. If you are thinking of serving Thai or Mediterranean food at your next get-together, think about a rosé. This crowd-pleaser pairs well with cuisine from these regions and can enhance the flavor of your dishes without overpowering them.
As a relatively easy wine to produce, rosé is made around the world. Order and buy rosé at Wine Chateau from Chile, the U.S., Spain, Portugal, Italy, France or several other locations. Known for its modest price and underappreciated for its qualities, we recommend rosé as a perfect wine for summer nights. Typically served chilled, it is so zesty and refreshing that you'll feel the need to buy it by the case.
