Rosé is style of wine that has a slight red tinge to it. Traditionally, color has been added by adding grape skins to the wine, but not long enough to qualify it as a red wine. Alternatively, red wine is sometimes blended with white to achieve the desired color.
This year, we have a limited number of Rosé kits from Winexpert. On the drier side (it’s a Sauvignon Blanc base), it should have slight citrus notes.
From Winexpert: Offering up tropical notes of pineapple and white peach with raspberry and cherry. The off-dry finish is balanced by expressive acidity for a refreshing, crisp wine that’s great on its own or with your favorite seafood dish.
For additional background on rosé wine, there’s a really nice article from the nice folks at Wine Folly. It discusses various tastes available in rosé wine, as well as how rosé wines are made. You can view the article here.
Sauvignon Blanc not your thing?
We have other blushes available too for your summer enjoyment! How’s about some other offerings from Winexpert, like:
- White Merlot
Take Merlot. Make it a blush. Voila – a Merlot like you’ve never experienced! Fresh strawberries abound in the aromas and flavours of this medium-pink rose style wine, capped by a crisp finish that’s slightly drier than a typical blush. Bright fruit and generous acidity make it a brilliant food pairing wine. Try it with salads, appetizers, fruits – even BBQs and spicy cuisine.
- White Zinfandel
This blush favourite displays the trademark pink hues and a soft, refreshing taste that make it particularly enjoyable as a chilled delight on a summer afternoon. Must be tried to be believed.
- Pink Moscato
Light and refreshing on the palate with flavours of fresh strawberry, raspberry and cherry.
