A rosé wine has some of the color typical of a red wine, but only enough to turn it pink. The pink color can range from a pale orange to a vivid near-purple, depending on the grapes and wine making techniques.
When wine rosé is the primary product, it's 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 grapes are then pressed, and the skins are discarded rather than left in contact throughout fermentation, thereby leaving the structure more similar to a white wine.
Vibrant colour with lively purple hues. Lifted aroma of rose petals and cherries. Powerful fruit flavours are enhanced by a well structured palate. Clean finish with crisp acidity.
A vibrant pink/red with aromas of fresh raspberries, strawberries, candy and confectionary notes. The palate is delicate and fruit driven with beautifully balanced acid and sweetness. The wine is fresh and vibrant and ideal as an aperitif or with fish, chicken or hearty vegetable dishes.
We found that our Grenache held its acid well in the 2010 season, allowing for slightly later picking and more generous fruit profile. Cold soaking for 48 hours is sufficient for colour extraction and the wine is treated to a long, slow, cool fermentation to retain maximum primary fruit freshness.
