The pink color of the rosé (or roscato in Spanish) wine can range from a pale “onion-skin” orange to a vivid near-purple, depending on the varietals used and winemaking techniques. Usually, the primary flavors of a rosé wine are red fruit, flowers, citrus, and melon, with a pleasant crunchy green flavor on the finish similar to celery or rhubarb.
Rosé wines have many versions or so-called shades and can come in many names such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, White Merlot and Zindafel, or Pinot Noir. If you’re looking for something nice and fresh to drink, there’s nothing quite like a chilled bottle of rosé especially in a hot summer afternoon. Rosé wine is perfect for any occasion too.
Rosé wines sit in the middle of the white-red wine spectrum and is mostly fruity and delicate. Some say that it is too sweet for their tastes but if paired with a delicious dish such as salads or grilled meats, it can taste very good. Pairing this kind of wine can easily be paired with the following:
Cooked vegetables especially paired with fish both go really well with your rosé. Not only it will be a truly great pairing but it will take your dish into a whole new level. Try this recipe called Grilled Citrus Fish which is delicious and citrusy.
Summer is fast approaching and there are a lot of scrumptious meat dishes that will go along very well with rosé wine. We’re thinking of grilled lambs as a healthy option because of its lighter taste. Or if you’re a chicken lover, this recipe might be the one you want.
Savory Tarts and Cheesy-licious dishes
Rosé wines and delicious savory tart in the afternoon? Definitely a great day to enjoy. Dishes such as this contain one ingredient that the rosy wine goes along with: Cheese. Milder, lighter, summery cheeses like goat cheeses also is a tasty pair! Ham, Leek and Gouda Souffles is also a lovely dish that goes well with Dry rosé wines.
As always with other kinds of wines out there, rosé wine is best served cold. Like between 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit in the fridge for several hours. The best way is to place it in the fridge immediately after buying it from the wine shop. While chilling it, we recommend that you start preparing and cooking that delicious grilled meat or vegetables.
