Star Roses of the Summer
Rose is one of the most delicate wines and one of the most difficult wines to make well. The colour of the wine will depend on the length of time and on the temperature at which the nearly colourless juice of the grapes stays in contact with the skins: otherwise known as the maceration. The secret to creating the colour, aromas and elegance of the final wine all comes from this precise work.
