Our full review of this beautiful sweet pink wine will be coming  soon!

Keep your eyes on our social media for updates on this and more. 

what is rose wine?

Commonly misspelled as Rose Wine Rosè and Rose’ wine. Rosé has become the “it” wine in recent years, thanks to its attractive pink tint and refreshing taste on a hot summer day, and it shows no signs of fading.

Rosé is a wine category, similar to reds and whites, rather than a distinct grape variety.

While it is made in the same way as other red wines, the time it spends fermenting with grape skins is reduced. The rosé’s characteristic pink color comes from the reduced skin contact.

OUR TOP 10 ROSE RECOMMENDATIONS

Roses are red, but rosé is pink, and in 2021, it’s the summer’s top drink.

LIST OF OUR FAVORITES

Miraval Studio Rosé

Our second favorite wine for this glorious summer season is the Mirval Studio Rosé.

In 1977, the Wine estate’s owner, jazz musician Jacques Loussier, erected a recording studio on the property, which welcomed international performers such as Pink Floyd, The Cure, AC/DC, Wham, Sting, and The Cranberries and Rammstein. 

This is an excellent wine for any music lover as it has a great history. But it also has this incredible depth of flavor as it has a refreshing acidity and a crisp finish. 

This French wine is dryer on the pallet, and my recommendation for food pairing is Oysters.

Perfect for Everyday

Cupio Pino Noir Rose 

Not only does this Blush wine have Floral aromas, but it is also fresh and has notes of raspberry and strawberry fruit and citrus. This South Australian wine is outstanding. This fruity rosé wine is juicy due to the redcurrant and raspberry flavors, a hint of minerality with stone fruit and citrus notes, and a crisp acidity, which is nicely balanced by the subtle creaminess and natural acidity.

This is a dry Rose wine and is excellent for easy summer drinking. Stock up your fridge, too, as this wine is on the list of Best Rose Wines for under $20!

Tread Softly Rosé

The color of this good rose wine is a pale pink that fits into the classic Provence “pale and dry” spectrum.

The rose flavors are strawberries and rose petals, which fill the nose with aromatics, a beautifully perfumed scent.

Compared to past vintages, the palate is graceful and effortless, with subtle berry and candied fruit drop flavors that linger long on a gentle, dry finish.

WHAT DOES ROSE WINE TASTE LIKE?

5 THINGS TO LOOK FOR IN A GOOD ROSE

1. Select a respected region

Wine regions can be challenging to identify, even for experts, because the world of wine is continuously changing and evolving.

However, you must begin somewhere, and my best recommendation is to start with the tried-and-true regions such as Cotes de Provence, California, Bordeaux, Northern Spain, Australia, and Oregon.

If you’re still not confident, here’s what you can do. Consider your favorite red grape wines (like pinot noir).

Almost every red wine-producing region also makes rosé wine. Therefore if you like the red wine from a particular region, you ought to try the rosé as well.

So, if you like Spanish ‘Tempranillo,’ you should give their rosé a try.

2. Select a recent vintage whenever possible

Rosé should be consumed as soon as possible and as young as possible. It doesn’t have the same qualities as Red Wine.

That means you should buy, to get the best rose wine, 2020. This vintage year will allow you to experience and get the most authentic flavor of the pale pink wine.

3. Determine if it will be a sweet or dry Rose Wine

The alcohol by volume, or ABV, on the label, is the key. Anything higher than 11% will be considered a dry rosé.

Is Rosé Sweet?

If you enjoy sweet wines, the rosé with the lowest alcohol content will be sweeter.

Italian rose wine & french rose wine are more dry rosé wines that are crisp and acidic. Still, new-world regions like California rose wine, South American rose wine, and Australian rose wine are fruitier and sweeter.

Some of the most common types of sweet rosé wines include:

– Rosé, White Zinfandel

– White merlot

– Pink Moscato

4. Take a look at the wine color

Darker rosé has a significantly richer texture that will feel fuller in your mouth and might be a fruity wine in taste than lighter hues with more delicate flavors.

Neither color option is wrong. It is down to your personal preference and taste buds.

For example, provençal rosé (made in southern France) tends to be pale pink, sometimes salmon-colored. 

5. Select your preferred grape.

Rosé wine can be made from any red wine grape. And the flavor profile will be dominated by the rosé’s primary grape.

Pinot noir rosé features tart red fruity flavors like cherries and notes of strawberry, while cabernet rosé includes black fruit scents like blackberries and black plums.

ROSÉ FAQS

WHAT DOES ROSE WINE TASTE LIKE?

Rosé has a flavor profile similar to a light red wine but with brighter and sharper overtones. Fruit flavors like wild strawberry, notes of cherry, ripe raspberries, and ripe peaches are what is commonly described. 

WHAT TO DRINK ROSE WITH?

When it comes to meal pairings, rosé is surprisingly a versatile wine.

Aside from making an excellent aperitif in the sunshine, the beautiful pink wine pairs great with fresh salads, goats, cheese, grilled fish, and an Italian rosé with antipasti.  Or a rosé, white zinfandel, pairs excellently with spicy food.

HOW IS ROSE MADE?

Many people believe that all rosé is made from a mix of white and red wine, although most bottles are made via skin contact or as a “saignée.” Only rosé Champagne allows red wine to be blended with white.
