Rosé is considered to be a cult drink. Rose wine is associated with a sophisticated holiday, it is perfect for summer evenings: light, refreshing and cool.
Real rosé wine is made only from grapes of red varieties. Its color is obtained from a short contact of the squeezed juice and berries peel: the wort simply does not have time to become colored. Sometimes the berries are squeezed until the desired color is obtained; to make the wine darker, the wort is infused on the berries peel (they are taken out when the future drink has reached the required saturation).
Rosé wine bouquet is not as saturated as that of red, but just because of the lightness of taste, this wine is perfectly combined with any dishes.
The best temperature to serve rosé wine is 10-12 °C.
Do not forget to buy a rosé wine for your journey! It will be very useful for summer vacation. Here are our favorites:
