What type of wine is rosé?
Broad definitions indeed, but they have to be, as rosés are made in still, semi-sparkling and sparkling forms, from grapes as light as zinfandel and as dark as shiraz, and in colours from light grapefruit to deep plum. Rosés can be made from one type of grape, the colour coming from a short period of contact with the skin of the fruit, or by simply blending a white and a red together.
Is rosé sweet or dry?
As a general rule dry rosés tend to be more popular in Australia, as our palate is partial to dry, bold reds like shiraz and cabernet sauvignon, and dry whites like chardonnay.
What is the best type of rosé?
While rosé is an afterthought in most of the world’s wine regions, the French province of Provence is the exception to the rule. They take rosé seriously there, so a bottle may be worth the investment to compare and contrast against the best local efforts.
How long will unopened rosé last?
Once it’s opened it’s wise to consume your rosé within three days, although some can be palatable for up to a week.
