Let’s Stop and Smell the Rosé!

May 5, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm CEST

Rosé Wine Tasting Online

Let’s pretend we’re having lovely spring sunshine and help ourselves to a glass or two of rosé. I will explain the 5 principal ways that pink wine is made, and delve a little into the science of the phenolics.

So buy yourself a couple of bottles and bring them to our online tasting. I will supply a bunch of maps, charts and diagrams to help us to understand better the wines that we are tasting – and we can compare colours and flavours together.

There will be a few tasting and food suggestions in the comments. Spoiler Alert: the best match for rosé wine is garlic…

I think you will be pleasantly surprised by the variety and complexity of this ultimate pink drink – as well as the great science and history behind it.

Join now with other wine lovers from Germany, France and elsewhere.

Cheers, Sean

  1. Some Rosé options:
    Pink Champagne – nearly always produced by slinging some red wine into normal bubbly
    Rosé Cava – usually made from Trepat, which you may not have tasted before?
    German Spätburgunder rosé – sometime blended with Portugeiser or similar
    Tavel – the sole AOC in France that only makes rosé; like most Rhône / Provence / Languedoc / Catalan wines it is based on Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault
    Provence’s pale rosé – sometimes called “vin gris” or “onion skin rosé”
    Tuilé or ambré muscats – these vins doux naturels (fortified wines) from Roussillon are types of rosé
    Rosé de Loire – typically Cabernet Franc; note that Rosé d’Anjou and Cabernet d’Anjou are NOT dry
    Chiaretto – a bright Italian rosato style: Bardolino would be a great choice
    Clairet – the historic dark rosé from Bordeaux that gives us the word “Claret”
    Blanc de noir – although this implies that the wine is white, it can indicate a pale pink wine from red grapes
    Blush – sweeter Californian rosés, sometimes called “White Zinfanel”, but can also be Cabernet Sauvignon
