Rosé is an extremely popular wine style in Europe, particularly southern France and Spain. In some regions, like Provence, Rosé is a far more popular summer wine style than white wine. A large part of Rosé’s charm is its simplicity. It’s a wine to drink rather than savour, and a chilled glass of Rosé makes an ideal drink over the warm summer months. Another good trait of Rosés is that they make great partners to a wide range of foods. They’re also good without food. Generally speaking, with the exception of the mass-produced Portuguese examples, most notably Mateus, the European Rosé style is typically drier and less fruity than Australian Rosés.
Sparkling Rosé generally mirrors traditional Champagne and are often made with the classic Champagne varieties – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
