5 Things to Know about Rosé

By March 17, 2019 April 28th, 2019 No Comments
Rosé is the hottest wine trend of the summer! Maybe you’ve never given them a try – don’t hesitate. This lively and versatile varietal is a perfect companion for summer nights, beach chairs and picnics!

 

  1. Rosé is made by soaking with the skins for a short time. The longer the soak, the deeper the color of the rosé. Gooseneck Vineyards Rosé gets its spring color from an overnight soaking of the crushed grapes on its skins. The juice is then pressed from the skins and fermented slowly under cool temperatures in small stainless steel tanks, as each lot of grapes is kept separate as a cuvee method is employed during blending.
  2. Fresher is better with Rosé! Rosé, unlike red wine, does not improve with age. You shouldn’t drink (and probably won’t find) anything that’s dated more than two or three years back.
  3. Rosé should be dry, not sweet. You want a rose that’s fresh and acidic, without extra sugar to bury its fruity flavors and aromas. Gooseneck Vineyards Dry Rosé is lively and aromatic fruit character and crisp acidity while delivering a well-balanced rosé, full of character and life.
  4. Serve chilled. Like a white, you want to make sure you allow time for your rosé to get nice and chilled before drinking.
  5. Rosé is versatile! These wines fall in between the extremes of red and white — less intense than a red, but with more depth than a white.  Serve Gooseneck Rosé with appetizers, delicate pasta courses, baked or roasted fish, steamers and raw shellfish: littlenecks, oysters, and shrimp.
