This deliciously pink type of wine, the Rosé, will simply delight you with fruity bliss. Rosés can range from the most subtle salmon colour to a rare deep red and between sweet and dry varieties. Two traditional methods have been adopted for the production of Rosé wines, namely the French method of “Bleeding”, which involves removing a small portion of wine from fermenting red wine and placing it separately. The second more common method is used in South African Rosé wines and involves grape skin contact. After grape crushing takes place, the skins are removed after a few hours or days.
The most popular South African Rosé wine-varietals are the popular Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot while Grenache, Cinsaut, and Shiraz can also be used. Buy Rosé wines online at CyberCellar at the most affordable cellar door prices and you get delivery to your door.
