The rise of rosé has been one of the wine world’s biggest success stories in recent years. For a while, most pink wine was unfashionably sweet, but the delicate, dry Provence style is back (epitomised by our very own Château Minuty). And it’s not just being made in France. Italy has some great examples, and anybody setting out to make a rosé in the New World is now looking to Provence for inspiration. Rosé is not (well, not usually) a blend of red and white, but is made from red grapes pressed gently so only a minimal amount of colour (and tannin) finds its way into the juice.
