From golden-rose to bright and vibrant, rosé wines range in colour as much as flavour and can be the perfect drink to enjoy with your lover on a hot summer day.
Rosé is made from red grapes that are crushed and left with their skins on for anything from a few hours to a few days, depending on the colour and flavour that the wine-maker wants to achieve. The longer the grapes are left to macerate with their skins, the darker the colour of the wine will be.
Rosé is generally classified as dry, or sweet. Dry is the most common style of wine produced today although when rosé first rose to fame, it was commonly sweet.
And while we are proudly South African and agree that South Africa makes a damn good bottle of rosé, the French have definitely mastered the art. Their rosé is dry and refreshing with aromas of berries.
We’re getting thirsty just thinking of it!
