What is rosé wine?
Despite the common misconception that rosé wine is just a mix of red and white wine, it is actually made the same way as red wine. The key difference is that the grapes are crushed lightly, so the wine takes on the right coloring with a lighter taste.
Since all grape juice runs clear, rosé wines can be made from any type of red grape. The coloring only comes from contact with the skin of the grapes. The longer the juice is left in contact with the skin, the deeper the color will be and the more it will take on the tannic characteristics found in red wine. Rosé wines can run the table from ultra-sweet to bone dry depending on which type of red grape is being used.
Some rosés, like White Zinfandel, are flavored with added sugars. So look for a rosé wine that is fresh, crisp and acidic, with no extra sugar that buries the mineral content of the wine. If you are on the hunt for a classic, dry rosé, look for one produced in the Tavel wine region or Loire Valley of France.
It pairs well with an assortment of flavors
Rosé wines are not only inexpensive, but are also extremely food friendly. They lie between the extremes of red and white wine, allowing them to be both versatile and complimentary with a vast assortment of flavors. Rosé wines are a great choice for barbeques and picnics, afternoon parties and trips to the lake. They pair very well with most salads and are an excellent welcoming aperitif drink for your guests.
