Known as rosé [roh-ZAY] in Europe and blush in North America,

this pink-colored wine is made when the skins of red grapes are left in contact with the juice for a relatively short period of time, until the wine has achieved sufficient color. The wine is then processed as a white wine.

A number of countries make rosé wines, typically from the Grenache grape. California is famous for white zinfandel, its trademark blush wine made from the Zinfandel grape. Blush wines may be labeled under a variety of names, including blanc de pinot noir, cabernet blanc, pinot gris and vin gris.

wine TIP Best served chilled (as you would a white) and best drunk young, blush wines are often sweet, but there are dry versions available.
