Rosé wine is made from 100% red wine grapes and can range in color from a pale orange to a near-purple. All the color comes from the skin (all juice is white), so to make the pale Rosé, after crushing, the skins remain in contact with the juice for just a short time. The must is then pressed, and the skins are discarded. From then it is processed as a white wine.

Rosés are ready to drink quite young.
