Rosé Wine for Warm Summer Days

For a long time, rosé wine just wasn’t taken that seriously. But the word about that mistake has been getting around:Rosé wine has been becoming increasingly popular with wine lovers over the past few years. Well-chilled, it is an excellent summer wine for hot days.

 

The Popularity of Rosé Wine

The growing popularity of  rosé wine is also supported by statistics: While rosés made up just two percent of the market a few years ago, it now makes up eight percent. It still has a relatively small distribution compared to white and red wines, which is due to a persistent misconception. Many people who aren’t involved with wine on a regular basis believe that rosé is simply made by mixing white wine with red. That is, however completely false. At least any self-respecting European vintner would indignantly refrain from such a practice. Following severe protests, an EU legislative proposal to allow this method fell through for exactly that reason. Red and white wines may only be mixed in the production of sparkling rosé wines. Outside of Europe, at least some of the cheapest rosés, are in fact made by mixing red and white wine. 


Real Rosé Wine: Colour Depends Upon the Production Method

The truth is roséweine is made from crushed red wine grapes and then fermented like a white wine. There are a few various methods that differ only slightly from one another – and they can be recognised by the colour of the finished rosé wine. If the red grapes are pressed but not chopped, and the liquor is then fermented without skin, a very light rosé is the result, and it has a tender, delicate aroma. If, however, the grapes remain in the mash for even one or two days, the grape skins give the wine a stronger, raspberry red colour and a more intensive flavour. 

The most intensive rosé comes from France and is made with the Saignée method. After a period of 12 – 48 hours, part of the unpressed mash is removed from the red wine fermentation vat, pressed, and then vinified as a rosé. The pomace (the solid material left after pressing) is then returned to the remaining red wine, and the grape skins reintroduced to the mash increase the colourants and tanninsproportionately. One might even say that rosé wine made with the Saignée method is a by-product of red wine production. Which doesn’t mean that it is of lower quality: Tavel, which comes from the Avignon region, is produced with the Saignée method, and many consider it the best rosé of all.

It should be mentioned that the combining of red and white wine is practiced in Europe as well - sort of. Rotling, also known regionally as Schillerwein or Schieler, is made from both white and red grapes. These, however are mashed and vinified together. White varieties used for rotlings are, for example, Riesling or Pinot Gris. The rotling, however, is never allowed to call itself a rosé!

 

Varietal Grapes in Rosé Wine

Many red varieties are used for the production of rosé wine and vary from region to region. The following varieties are of special importance for the production of rosé wine:

  • Pinot Noir: Rosé wine from Germany is mostly made from the Pinot Noir grape. If the wines have been made from a single variety and originate from a single location, they are usually termed ‘Vin Gris’.
  • Cabernet: For the production of French rosé wines, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon are used primarily in the Bordeaux region, but these varieties have also become quite common in the New World.
  • Cinsault: Together with other varieties, and especially in the south of France, the Cinsault grape produces lightly fragrant and fruity rosé wines.
  • Grenache: This variety is primarily used in the production of Spanish rosé wines and in wines from the south of France.
  • Tempranillo: Especially in Rioja, this variety is to Spain what the Cabernet is to France, and it is also popular for the production of vin gris rosés.
  • Zinfandel/ Primitivo: This variety is found primarily in California. Rosé wines there are called ‘White Zinfandel’ or ‘Blush Zinfandel’.


Especially in the summer, a well-chilled rosé is the perfect companion to light dishes such as salads, tapas, antipasti or fish. As a rule, rosés do not have aging potential and should be consumed while they are still young. An exception is the abovementioned Tavel, which can also be left to mature in the bottle for a few years.
