What are the characteristics of Rose Wine?
Rosé wine is characterized by its light and refreshing taste, with raised acidity levels that can make it a perfect accompaniment to a wide variety of foods. Its colour can range from pale pink to deep pink or even orange. Rosé wine can have a wide range of flavour profiles, from dry and fresh to sweet and fruity, with notes of strawberry, raspberry, watermelon, citrus, and herbs.
The winemaking process for rosé wine involves a shorter maceration period than for red wine: After the grapes are harvested, they are crushed and, together with the skins, placed in a tank for only a short period of time, typically a few hours to a few days. The skins impart colour, tannins, and flavours into the juice - once the desired colour is achieved, the juice is separated from the skins and will finally result in a delicious Rosé. At Chilled Wine we truly love this wine, as it is versatile and enjoyable and can be enjoyed on many different occasions!

Frequently Asked Questions
Is Rose sweeter than White Wine?
The winemaking process for rosé typically involves a shorter maceration period. As a result, many rosé wines have a lighter body and less tannic structure than red wines, and a drier, crisper taste than many white wines.
What kind of wine is Rose?
Rosé wine is made from red wine grapes, but with a shorter maceration period than red wine. During maceration, the grape skins are left in contact with the juice to extract color and flavors. The Rose wine skins are only in contact with the juice for a short period of time, resulting in a lighter color.
Why is Rosé wine good for you?
Rosé wine, like other wines, is a low-calorie beverage and contains antioxidants (most of them in the skins) that can help protect your cells from damage. Moderate consumption of wine has been linked to lower risk of heart disease and stroke, reduced cholesterol, and even a lowered cancer risk.
Is Rose wine high in Alcohol?
The alcohol content of rosé wine can vary depending on the winemaking process and the grape varietals used. In general, rosé wine tends to have a similar alcohol content to white wine, typically ranging from 11% to 13% alcohol by volume (ABV).
