Rose wine incorporates some colour from the skins. A range of colours are available from super pale salmon through to a deep vivid fuchsia. A popular misconception is that the paler the colour, the more refined the wine – this is simply not true. The vast majority of rose wine is made through the skin contact method where the skins are crushed and allowed to remain in the juice for a short while, thus leaving a pink hue. Some rose wine is made by blending red wine into white wine – this is not a common way to make rose wine at all - especially in France where (outside the champagne region) it is forbidden by law. Also known as Rosado in Spain or Rosato in Italy. Whatever it’s known as, we love it and have plenty for you to try.
