Did you know more people in France drink Rose than white wine...at least that's what I've read. There are good reasons for that.
Rose is an easily drinkable wine that's relatively inexpensive.
Typically, producers pick the grapes early to keep the acidity high and the alcohol level low. There is minimal contact with the skins, thus the rose color.
Rose is ready to drink now. While you're waiting for your Cab to spend its time maturing, you can drink Rose.
So...why not try some this summer? I am.
