Are You The Rosé Wine Type?
For someone to say they aren’t a rosé wine type of person (fellas, we’re looking at you!) clearly does not know all that’s great about rosé wine. Sure the color may be a little feminine, but does that really matter? What matters are the incredible flavors, aromas, and versatility rosé wines can offer. Here are some fun facts to know about various types of rosé wines:
- Rosé wine is made from red grapes, but the grape skins are removed much sooner in the process so that the pink color and light taste is achieved. The longer the skin is left on the grape, the darker the wine.
- So, rosé wine types are not made from mixing a red and a white wine
- The younger, the better. Rosé wine is meant to be enjoyed while they are young – don’t let them age!
- Sparkling rosé wine types are growing increasingly popular, such as the sparkling rose from Diama Sparkle.
- Rosé wine can be served with ice. Especially on a hot Summer day, when rosé wine is most popular, rose on ice will be absolutely delightful.
- Most Old-World roses come from Europe and will tend to be more dry (not as sweet) than New World roses that come from everywhere else. There are some exceptions, but this is the general rule and understanding.
- There are so many types of rosé wines that can pair with nearly any foods (fish, chicken, steak, veggies, desserts, snacks), including all that barbecue you’re cooking up in the Summer!
- Rose is a great mixer wine for cocktails.
Now that you know what you need to know about all types of rosé wine, in general, time to enjoy!
We’re going for a class of that Diama Sparkle rosé we mentioned. It’s chic, graceful, and sophisticated in appearance, flavor, and aromas. The bouquet of this extra-dry rose type blooms with hints of red berries, crisp citrus, and fragrant flowers. We’ll be having this rosé wine with some cheese, crackers, and salami!
