For many in the world of wine, there is either red or white. We often forget there is a wonderful treasure in between – PINK! There is a tendency to assume that all things pink will taste sweet — but that is not true. Many pink wines are dry and delightful. The colour of the wine will never tell you the level of sweetness — however, mostly all premium pink wines these days are dry. Colour comes from the skins of the grapes; the thicker the skins, the darker the winemaker can make the wine. This is done by extracting the colour from the skin of the grape itself. The thinner the skins, the lighter the colour!
Here are 6 blends from around the world for you to have a pink party and enjoy the wonderful world of Rosé. Try using these wines for a fun summer sangria too!
