Rose wines have been associated with a sweet blush wine called white Zinfandel for most Americans, or a couple Portuguese wines named Mateus and Lancers. However French, Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese winemakers have been producing delicious mostly drier styles of blush wines for a long time. These exhibit great berry characteristics, nice acidity and are versatile food wines. Even new world producers are now adopting this way of producing drier blush wines from red grapes, with minimal skin contact during fermentation to achieve the pink color. The popularity of blush wines has increased dramatically in the last few years.
