ROSE WINE

Simply defined; a rosé wine is a type of wine that uses some of the color from the grape skins, but not enough to qualify it as a red wine. It may be the oldest known type of wine, as it is the most straightforward to make with the skin contact method. The pink color can range from a pale "onion-skin" orange to a vivid near-purple, depending on the varietals used.

Rosé wines can be made still, semi-sparkling or sparkling and with a wide range of sweetness levels from highly dry Provençal rosé to the amatuer efforts of sweet White Zinfandels (not really wines now are they ??) and blushes. Rosé wines are made from a wide variety of grapes and can be found all around the globe.

When rosé wine is the primary product, it is produced with the skin contact method. Black-skinned grapes are crushed and the skins are allowed to remain in contact with the juice for a short period, typically one to three days. The must (read; all the mess that was in th vat; seeds, stems, skins, juice an everything else) is then pressed. The skins are removed rather than left in contact throughout fermentation (as with red wine making). The longer that the skins are left in contact with the juice, the more intense the color of the final wine. Think of leaving a tea bag to steep for too long !!!

When a winemaker desires to impart more tannin and color to a red wine, some of the pink juice from the must can be removed at an early stage in what is known as the Saignée (from French bleeding) method. The red wine remaining in the vats is intensified as a result of the bleeding, because the volume of juice in the must is reduced, and the must involved in the maceration becomes more concentrated.

  1. d'Soumah Brachetto 2016

    90pts - James Halliday 'Australian Wine Companion

    "Made with a sweet core but with full-strength alcohol. A perfect dessert-style wine for a picnic lunch. Fuchsia-crimson & extravagantly perfumed. Rose petals & rose water, stone fruit, raspberries, ripe strawberries. It's refreshing & delightful at once."

    The sweetness of the wine comes from picking the fruit later with higher levels of natural sugar, then stopping fermentation before the wine is completely dry. Whats left is a low alcohol, delightfully still dessert wine that tastes like roses & strawberries & is perfect to accompany berries, fruit pies & soft cheeses.

  9. Champagne Dumenil Rose 'Vielles Vigne' Premier Cru

    Dumenil is an independant Champagne House  founded in 1874 & remaining in the family for 5 generations. All vineyards are Premier Cru in the typical chalk soil of Champagne's Montagne de Reims. Only the first & best juice is used.

    Lovers of luscious rosé champagnes will be delighted by the use of very old red Pinot Meunier vines ('vielles vigne'). Delicate with the bite of fresh fruit but with subtle harmony between fruitiness & elegance.There are very few champagne makers who emphasise the powerful fruitiness of the Pinot Meunier grape. This precise blend of light, ethereal wines with a judicious amount of Pinot Meunier creates a champagne that is elegant, fruity & unequalled. Scintillating bubbles against a pretty salmon pink background.
    Aromas of crushed strawberries & Morello cherries, with elegant red fruit flavours in abundance.
    The finish is pleasantly fresh with a hint of almond paste and cocoa.
