Different Types Of Rosé

From Rosé All Day to brosé to frosé, it’s clear that rosé has rocked the wine world in the past decade.

And with so many different types of rosé wine, this fabulously pink drink has won over even the biggest naysayers.

This popular rosé grape is the dominant variety used in the classic Southern French style. Its thin skin can produce that sought-after pale style.

Grenache Rosé

This thin-skinned grape is difficult to grow. But it pays off big when done right. Pinot Noir‘s high acidity and light body tend to make crisp and delicate rosés.

Pinot Noir Rosé

The higher tannins from the skins are balanced by the grape’s naturally high acidity. It’s also known to have an herbaceous bell pepper note that comes through when it’s less ripe.

Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé

Cabernet Franc also has a distinct herbaceousness and, sometimes, a peppery note. And it tends to have high acidity but a little less tannin than Cabernet Sauvignon.

Cabernet Franc Rosé

This thick-skinned grape originated in Spain, where it’s known as Monastrell. As a rosé it can be quite bold, with notes of violet and plum.

Mourvèdre Rosé
