At Molly’s we love rosé! Rosé is not a 3 month phenomena for our customers – it is a year round celebration of fresh, fun and food friendly goodness. Date night – Yes Please! Tuesday night – Yes Please! Tuesday night date night – better get two bottles! Thanksgiving feasts – but of course. Backyard barbecues – we’d be lost without it. There are many Northwest Denver area gardens that are more beautiful thanks to the hydration support rosé has given to our many gardeners. Many dogs have gotten longer walks thanks to the refreshment factor of rose. Many meals have lingered, and good times on the porch/patio/yard that have endured because of the magical properties of rosé.
Most of the rosé on our shelves is dry, refreshing and food oriented. Think – dry White wine on steroids! However, if you lean towards the fruitier or sweeter side of the wine spectrum, we’ve got great options for you too.
Rosé wine is fresh, feminine and expressive. We don’t know too many men or women who don’t appreciate that. Delicate berries, ripe melons, succulent stone fruits, fresh herbs, pungent rhubarb, aromatic flowers, citrus peel oils, subtle wet crushed stone all lend there nuance to this delicious pink fermented grape juice.
Rosé is essentially a low-key red wine that is often times amped up with good levels of fresh natural mouth watering acidity. Generally speaking we get color, flavor, aromatic compounds and texture in pink wine, the same way we get these things in red wine. Most of these elements develop in wine from grape skin contact. In red wine skin contact lasts many days and can last for multiple weeks. In rose production it is a matter of a few hours. Sometimes pink rosé wine is the result of red grapes being crushed specifically for rosé production. This is when a short time into red wine production, some rosé is “bled off”. This allows the producer to get some light fresh subtle rose and then continue to make a red wine that is denser and more powerful as the developing red wine has an increased skin to juice ratio.
In rare occasions, rosé is produced by adding a small amount of red wine to a white wine. Aside from some rose champagne – this method is typically not used by noteworthy producers or in noteworthy wine producing regions.
