Getting to Know Rosé

For those that strictly prefer a red or a white wine, rosé often provides the option to share a wine, providing the refreshing acidity of the white wines and a little tannin of the red wines as it incorporates some of the color from the grape skins, but not enough to qualify it as a red wine.

Why Rosés Never Age ?

Rosé can be produced in a variety of ways with the most common method being early pressing of red grape varieties after a very short period, usually 12–24 hours, of skin-contact, known as maceration.

During maceration, phenolics such as the anthocyanins and tannins that contribute to color, antioxidants and flavor components are extracted from the skins, seeds and any stems left in contact with the grape juice.

While the maceration process for red wines will last several days to even several weeks, the very limited maceration of rosés means that these wines will have less stable color, flavor components and oxygen protection. This contributes to wines with shorter shelf-life that are meant to be consumed soon after release.

Maceration time and the grape varieties used for making a rosé determines its color.
