Rosé and maceration are an essential combination
Nowadays every average wine connoisseur knows that grape juice is always white – even from red grapes. The colour of red wine is extracted from the grape skins when they soak in their own juice. This process is called maceration.
For rosé wine, red grapes are used, but they remain in contact with the skins for only a few hours, as this way less red colour is extracted. This is why the colour of rosé wine depends largely on the duration of maceration, but also on the selected variety. The colours range from salmon, soft copper, onion, light pink to even cherry red. Slovenian rosé wines are, for example, darker, sometimes almost red, while Provencal wines are extremely light and subtle.
Precisely because of the shortness of maceration, rosé wine is not as heavy-bodied as red wine. Due to its delicate colour and taste, it is considered a ‘ladies’ wine’, but by no means does this mean that it is not enjoyed by men – many of them are partial to its light taste.
Which dishes pair best with rosé wine?
Or, better still, which dishes do not pair with it? You probably know that humorous saying that you serve rosé with food when you don’t know whether to choose white or red wine, right?
But jokes aside. Rosé wines are light and fresh, so they can be served with appetisers, snacks and white meat or even as an aperitif.
Choose dry rosé as an accompaniment to cheeses that match both the acidity of white wine and the fruity character of red. Moreover, rosé wines can be served with a variety of dishes with different compositions – from white meat to spicy tapas, seafood, light meat dishes and even Asian food.
Which rosé wine to choose?
As a general rule, rosé is drunk as a young wine, which is why it is best to buy as young rosé wines as possible. Only a few specimens are suitable for ageing. Batič Rosé, which ripens in selected locations of their older cabernet sauvignon vineyards, is pressed according to the old method and can be, say, aged for five years.
It can be produced from all red varieties, but in Slovenia it is most often produced from merlot, refosco, cabernet sauvignon and pinot noir varieties. The latter is captured in Bjana Brut Rosé sparkling wine with a ripe bouquet that is fine and complex. Fruity notes of strawberries and red fruits predominate. In the mouth, the wine is dry, but at the same time it offers a hint of sweetness, is medium-bodied, moderately acidic, with a fine oily texture and a very long aftertaste.
Medot Rosé sparkling wine of a vibrant light pink colour with purple hues is composed of a diverse combination of varieties: 60% pinot noir, 20% ribolla gialla and 20% chardonnay. In a properly chilled rosé sparkling wine you will perceive the aromas of floral petals, cream, hazelnut cake, citrus and honey. The taste of strawberries and red fruits gives the sparkling wine a prolonged aftertaste, and the taste of toasted bread and hazelnuts enriches its complexity. It is excellent as an aperitif, but also as an accompaniment to smoked fish, seafood, vegetable tempura, grilled chicken, pork and desserts with forest fruits.
