This pink wine is not made by blending white and red. The majority of rosés are made from red varietals where the skins are allowed to have brief contact with the grape juice. The shorter the contact time with the skins, the lighter the wine's color will be, but a darker shade of pink does not signify that a rosé will be sweet. Rosé are often made from the varietals Pinot Noir, Syrah, Grenache Merlot, Malbec Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo Sangiovese and Zinfandel.
