Rosé is generally made from black-skinned grapes. The main difference between rosé and red wine is the length of time the grape juice stays in contact with the skins, known as maceration. The grapes are crushed and destemmed, then left to macerate before pressing. The rest of the wine-making process is as for white wines.
Crisp or smooth, dry or a tad sweet, bold and fruity or elegant and refreshing, whichever way you take it, rosé is the ultimate drink this summer.
