Buy rosé wine online with these tips!

Do you enjoy a refreshing glass of wine but feel intimidated by the complexity of choosing between reds, whites, and everything in between? Fear not, dear wine lover, because we're here to introduce you to the world of rosé wine. This delicate wine has been gaining popularity over the past few years, and for good reason. It's versatile, delicious, and perfect for sipping on a warm summer day (or any day). Read below, were we'll answer all your burning questions about rosé and help you find your new favourite bottle.

What is Rosé Wine?

Rosé wine is made from lightly crushed red grapes, allowing the skins to remain in contact with the juice for a short period, giving the wine its signature pink hue. The longer the skins are left to macerate, the darker the colour of the wine will become. Rosé wine can be made from various red wine grapes such as Grenache, Pinot Noir, Merlot, and Syrah. It can also be a blend of several red grape varieties or it can be made by blending red wine and white wine together - although this is less common. 

Why Rosé Wine?

Rosé wine is fantastic when you're looking for a wine that's light and refreshing. It has less tannins than red wine and is less acidic than white wine. Rosé wine also pairs well with many types of food, from seafood and salads to spicy dishes and barbecue. Plus, you can enjoy rosé on its own or use it as a base for a refreshing summer cocktail.

Which Rosé Wine is Best?

There are so many amazing rosé wines to choose from, it all depends on your taste preferences and what you're pairing it with. French rosé wine is a popular choice, and you can't go wrong with a bottle of Provence Rosé. If you're looking for something a little sweeter, try an off-dry rosé from California or Australia. Some of our favourite rosés include AIX Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence Rosé and Farm Hand’s Organic Rosé, but be sure to explore a few different bottles and find what you personally prefer.

Who Made Rosé Wine?

Rosé wine has been around for centuries and has been enjoyed by people worldwide. Rosé has a history stretching back to the Phoenicians around 1550 B.C. – 300 B.C. and the Ancient Greeks circa 600 B.C. However, the evolution of catchy hashtags for this drink has been a recent development. Unlike the beautifully pink rosés we adore today, the ancient versions were quite different. They didn't resemble the picturesque salmon-colored drinks enjoyed by poolsides. Interestingly, the ancient method involved dilution, a technique that might raise eyebrows among modern wine enthusiasts.

What Rosé Wine is Dry? What Rosé Wine is Sweet?

Different rosé wines can be either dry or sweet depending on the winemaking process. Dry rosé usually has a crisp, acidic finish with little to no residual sugar. Sweet rosé, on the other hand, has a sweeter taste and can often be described as fruity or jammy. If you're unsure which type of rosé you prefer, try a few different bottles to get a sense of the flavour profiles you enjoy.


Is Rosé Wine Acidic?

While rosé wine is considered a light and refreshing wine, it does have some acidity. However, the acidity levels can vary between different types of rosé. Some rosé wines may have a higher acidity, making them taste tart or sour, while others may have a lower acidity, giving them a smoother and more balanced finish.


Best Rosé Wine Australia

Australia is known for producing some fantastic rosé wines with a wide variety of flavour profiles. Some popular Australian rosés include the Yellow Tail Rosé NV, d'Arenberg's Stephanie The Gnome With Tinted Glasses Rosé, and the Delamere Rosé. If you are looking for no/low alcohol rosé try Tread Softly Australian Rosé or Plus & Minus Australia Rosé Zero Alcohol. These widely available wines are great for sipping on a sunny afternoon.

In conclusion, Rosé wine is a fantastic light and refreshing wine that's perfect for warmer weather, sipping on its own, or pairing with food. Whether you prefer a dry, crisp rosé or a fruitier style, there's a perfect bottle out there for you, and we hope we've given you enough knowledge to help you find it. So grab a bottle of rosé, invite some friends over, and let the good times roll. Rosé all day, every day!
