THE CLUSTER: Why is Rosé Pink?

Hey there, grape! Ever wondered why Rosé has that gorgeous pink hue that just screams summer vibes and Instagram-worthy picnics? Well, you’re in luck because we’re diving into the colorful world of Rosé wine, perfect for anyone aspiring to level up their wine game from “sipper” to “connoisseur”!

Rosé wine sports its fabulous pink color through a pretty cool process that’s all about timing. Unlike its red and white wine cousins, Rosé’s unique shade comes from the grape skins, but only for a short period.

So here’s the scoop: When crafting Rosé, winemakers use red grapes (yes, red!), and it’s the skins that give it that pinkness we love. After harvesting, the grapes are lightly crushed, and the skins chill with the juice for a bit – think of it as a short spa bath that lasts anywhere from a few hours to a day or so.

This brief skin contact is like a quick dye job, imparting the wine with its color and a hint of the flavors you get from red wines. After that, the skins say “bye-bye,” leaving behind the juice that will become your beloved Rosé with its range of pink shades, from pale onion-skin orange to nearly purple, depending on the grape variety and how long the skins hang out with the juice.

So, there you have it. Rosé gets its Instagrammable hue from a quick hangout session between the juice and the grape skins. Whether you’re beach lounging, park picnicking, or just chilling at home, a glass of Rosé is perfect for those looking to add a splash of color and fun to their wine journey. Now you can impress your friends with your wine knowledge at the next gathering. Cheers to staying pink and sipping chic!
