A beloved drink, rosé wine is a firm favourite in summertime but can be enjoyed all year-round. Rosé is created by juicing red grapes and allowing that juice to soak with the skins for two or three days, then as the juice begins to take on colour these skins are removed and the juice is fermented to create rosé.
Rosé wine is the oldest known type of wine thanks to its straightforward skin contact method. The refreshing drink can be still, semi-sparkling or sparkling and come in a variety of sweetness levels.
The most popular rosés have the crispness of a white wine but still maintain the rich fruity flavour that make red wines so popular.
Provence is a region famed for its beautiful rosé, but the style is now cultivated across the globe – in Italy, Spain, France, the USA and more. At House of Townend, we handpick only the best wines at each price point. We also source wines from more unusual regions such as Monsoon Valley Rosé from Don Muang in Thailand.
Like other wines, rosé offers a variety of styles such as White Zinfandel, rosé Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Whether you prefer fruit-forward wines or more dry, acidic options, our selection of rosé is sure to delight even the most seasoned collector.
How to drink
Rosé should be served cold, preferably at 12.7c or 55f.
Rosé wine works well when paired with light dishes such as chicken, shellfish and pasta. You can also serve a sweet rosé wine as a dessert wine thanks to its refreshingly fruity finish.
