Rosé is typically made by allowing the skins of red grapes to come into contact with the wine for a short period of time, allowing both gentle colour transfer and increased textural complexity. In the case of the Champagne region, rosé wine is made by adding a touch of still red wine to the white – something we also find in some traditional roses of Spain such as Lopez de Heredia’s Vina Tondonia Rose. The grapes used to create rosé wine depend very much on the region in which it is produced and therefore what is available. This also dictates the aroma characteristics, flavour profile and ageability of the wine.
