What Is a Rosé?
A rosé wine is a wine intermediate in color between a white and a red wine. When juice is extracted from grapes, it is always clear in color, whether the grape is red, green or dark purple. Red wines get their color when the juice soaks in the skins of the grapes they came from, a process known as maceration.
There are, however, no pink grapes. Rosé is made by macerating the juice of red grapes for only a brief period of time, which makes the final product more of a pink color. The final shade will depend on how long the juice has been allowed to soak up the color from the grape skins.
Provence, a region in southern France, is the region most recognized for producing rosé wines, although a rosé can come from anywhere. There are many different varietals and shades of rosé, so you are sure to find one that suits your tastes and your budget.
The Tastes of the Rosé Family
The tastes of rosé wines are quite diverse, as are the regions they come from. While berry flavors and crisp finishes are common, there are heartier, earthier elements, too, like tobacco hints and leather. Some rosés are light in color while others have darker, stronger hues. They use a wide variety of grapes and macerate for different lengths of time. Some rosés are even sweet, though more commonly they are dry.
Most wine lovers can find a rosé they can appreciate, given the range of dry and sweet, hearty and light, earthy and citrus. Joel Gott’s Central Coast Rosé falls in the lighter, crisper category. If you are looking for that perfect rosé to take you back to the beach, or a nice light wine to pair with appetizers for a night in, grab a bottle of Joel Gott’s 2017 Central Coast Rosé.
