Rose / Rosé is a labeling term for a blush-colored wine made from red grapes with a very short amount of skin contact during pressing. It might be very shameful, but I really thought that a Rosé is a wine for me. Here in Germany, they all love wine, especially during special occassion. In my country where I grew up, wine is not a part of our culinary culture. Indeed we have local wines, but I have never learned to acquire wine taste. Since it is a Rosé, I thought it can be sweet like the rose flower, but like all wines that I have tasted, it seems to me that they all taste the same. Except for one wine Asti Spumante which I enjoyed very much, I think I will never learn to like wine at all. What a pity, wine is one of gifts people bring for special occassions and I have already collected some which are just standing in our wine cellar. I still have one bottle of Rose wine standing on our dining table which I am reserving for my husband and me for our 10th union anniversary. I hope that I will enjoy it, as it was described as a good wine.
