What is Rosé?
The colour of Rosé happens when the skins of red grapes are in contact with the wine for only a short time. Red wines ferment for up 2 weeks at a time on red grape skins, rosé wines are stained red for just a few hours. Nearly any red wine grapes can be used to make Rosé wine. However, Grenache, Tempranillo or Pinot Noir are the preferred grapes varieties for Rosé.
Australian Rosé vs French Rosé
Australian Rosé tends to be fruitier and sweeter than their French counterparts. A bottle from France will have more dry notes, but both wines will exhibit the fresh and crisp characteristics that are so prominent in this variety. Think fresh berry notes, cream and citrus zest. In Australia, a lot of Rosé is produced in the famous regions of Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale while in France, Provence is one of the most prominent areas when it comes to producing this historic and popular wine.
