Buy Rosé Wine

Rosé wine has surged in popularity recently due to it being lighter and (generally) having less alcohol content than either White or Red wines. The colour of the Rose wines comes not, as some believe, from mixing Red and White wine, but from the skin of the grape (which is allowed to sit in the juice of the crushed grape for a small time). Although primarily a European export the New World ‘White Zinfandel’ wines have recently been making an impact on the European market after gaining popularity in America in the early 1990’s. The New World Rose’s are made using a slightly different method than their European counterparts and a variety of terms to describe the grape (White Zinfandel, Blush Cabernet).
