A broad category of wines that in today’s marketplace most commonly refers to European-style dry, pink-coloured wines (even if made in the New World) that are produced predominantly from red varietals. Practically synonymous with warm weather, these offer similar flavours of many popular red wines but in a lighter style and are meant to be drunk chilled.
Flavours will depend somewhat on the varietals used, but rosé wines generally offer light- to medium-weight flavours and textures with subtle red fruits and a refreshing liveliness.
Picnic fare, pasta salads, grilled shrimp, mild cheeses.
Grilled chicken with rosemary, grilled fish, spicy Asian fare.
