The majority of Rose wines are produced from a single or a blend of the red grape varietals. The most commonly used varietals are Pinot Noir, Syrah, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Sangiovese. Sparkling Roses are normally produced with a blend of red and white grapes.
Traditionally, the colouring of the Rose wine is dependent on how long the red grape skins are in contact with the grape juice, the shorter contact time the lighter the colour while extended time yields some amazing eye colouring variations from vibrant orangey-pink to vivid hot pink.
Rose wine flavours tend to be more refined versions of their varietal equivalents with flavours leaning towards raspberry, strawberry and cherry with some citrus and watermelon becoming more present. Rose wine can be produced in a sweet, off-dry or bone dry style.
