Ep 053: Rosé, Blush, and Other Pink Stuff

Ep 053: Rosé, Blush, and Other Pink Stuff

This week we tackle the pink…a wine you need to be drinking.

After a great listener question on whether or not lots of bubbles in a sparkling wine indicate quality (listen to find out!), we give a run down on Rosé.

Here are the notes:

How Rosé is made: a little mixology, skin contact, and bleeding…that’s right, it gets gory.
Which grapes are commonly used and where
What exactly is Blush and what’s the difference between blush and Rosé
How do you know if you are getting a sweet, white Zinfandel type wine or a dry Rosé?
Regions that make pink wine: Rosé Champagne, Rosado, pink from the US, other regions around the world
Other variations of Rosé: Vin Gris, orange wine
Why vintage matters
Serving temperatures and ideas on food pairings

And the Grape of the Week (I know we’ve been slacking…): Mourvédre!
