Rosé 101

So many people have asked, what exactly is a rosé? Well, here is a pretty darn good definition:
" Rosé wines, often referred to as Blush wines or written Rosé, are wines which are not truly red, but have enough of a reddish tinge to make them assuredly not white. The actual color varies depending on the grapes involved, and often may seem to be more orange than pink or purple. Rose wines may be produced in a number of different ways, depending on the desired results. Most Rose wines are the result of crushing the red grapes used rather early on, so that they are not able to impart their color or much tannin to the final wine. These wines are in most respects white in character and flavor, with only the tinge of red and some subtle taste differences belying the difference." More information on Rose is avaliable at Wikipedia. Cheers
