AJA Vineyards Malibu Coast Rosé
Crack, twist, and pour this aromatic rose gold, salmon colored wine into a glass. Immediately notes of peach, nectarine, yellow cherries and strawberries engulf your senses. In the secondary aromas you notice a salinity and wet stone complexity. Take a sip of this beautiful wine and notice that though it is bright, crisp and dry, it still has all of those beautiful flavors hitting you in the mid-palate. The slight weight of this rosé allows for this wine to pair with more than just a poolside. But it pairs with just the pool quite nicely as well. This delicate rosé is one not to miss. Chill this wine down and enjoy it in the summer sun! So refreshing, you might just finish the bottle in a single sitting.
What Is Rosé Wine?
Rosé is actually a wine genre and not a particular grape type. The difference between the production of rosé wine and other red wines is how much contact the juice has with the grape skins. Most rosé wines are more dry than sweet, and our Malibu Coast rosé wine is crisp and refreshing in your wine glass. Rosé can be cultivated in any wine region and made from any red grape, which adds to its popularity and availability. Rosé wines are popular in France, Italy and Spain, and they’re a favorite in the U.S. It is worth mentioning that rosé is the most-produced wine in Provence, which is a coastal region in France with beautiful sunny skies and gorgeous beaches. Sound familiar?
How Is Rosé Wine Made?
The juice that comes from grapes is often clear, and the wine hue is from the grape skin. Maceration is a winemaking process that refers to when the juice of the wine soaks in all of the flavors and colors of the skin, which creates the color of the wine. When making rosé wine, we get rid of the skins and ferment the juice once it has turned into the desired color. This is called the Direct Press Process.
