Like white and red wine, rosé is a broad category of wine that is based on its blushing reddish-pink color. Rosé can be made from any red grape grown from any region with popular types including grenache, pinot noir, sangiovese, syrah, and carignan. In Spain, rosé is called rosado and in Italy it is known as rosato.
A common myth is that all rosé wine is on the sweet side, and while there are certainly some that are quite sweet, you can find alternative styles with very little sweetness.
When you taste a bottle of rosé, expect a combination of fruity and bright flavors like raspberries, citrus, flowers, and strawberries. A typical rosé will tend to be on the sweet side, but not overly so.
This is a wine that pairs well with everything. Think salads, roasts, sushi, and fish dishes.
