Over the last few years we’ve received many enthusiastic comments and interesting questions about our Grand Rosé (aka ‘Pink Prosecco’) and we’ve gathered together a selection of the most popular questions for our blog readers to peruse.
What exactly is “Pink Prosecco”?
‘Pink Prosecco’ is a term often used by our customers and many people who enquire about our products to describe our wildly popular Grand Rosé, an award winning sparkling wine that originates from northern Italy. It has similar qualities to those of Prosecco but slightly sweeter and with a subtle salmon pink colour – a delightful fizz that’s been increasing in popularity since it was introduced to our portfolio a few years ago.
Where is our Grand Rosé from?
Our Grand Rosé sparkling wine originates from the Veneto region of North Eastern Italy. The grapes used to make it are sourced from some of the very best Italian vineyards owned and managed by vintners with vast experience and a historical family presence in the industry dating back many hundreds of years.
How is Grand Rosé “Pink Prosecco” made?
Pink Prosecco is made using a carefully refined blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes where the pinot noir grape skins are used to produce the gentle colouring of the wine.
Grand Rosé is made using the same method as that used to make our sparkling Italian which goes through two carefully monitored and precisely timed fermentation processes. The first process results in a base wine which is basically still wine produced from the grape juice. The next fermentation process produces a sparkling wine through the addition of yeast and sugar to the existing base wine. The yeast turns the additional sugar into alcohol and instigates the production of carbon dioxide (CO2) bubbles that make it a sparkling wine.
The fermentation occurs in an airtight, sealed vat which ensures that the CO2 is retained in the liquid. The secondary fermentation is the longer process and can be allowed to take place over a few months or even years depending upon the variety of sparkling wine being made. A high quality “Pink Prosecco” undergoes a secondary fermentation for a few months which results in a light, fruity sparkling wine which is very easy and enjoyable to drink.
Is Grand Rosé similar to a pink champagne?
Grand Rosé “Pink Prosecco” is a sparkling wine but it’s very different from Champagne. Champagne grapes are grown in the French Champagne region and the production method is very different from the Charmat method used to produce Prosecco. Champagne undergoes the fermentation part of the production process takes place in the bottle rather than in a vat. Not surprisingly, the resulting liquid has a very different set of qualities from those of Prosecco. Champagne tends to be more on the dry side, with pronounced toasty/biscuit tones that suit a much more specific taste than the generally appealing qualities of Prosecco.
Is Grand Rosé “Pink Prosecco” dry or sweet?
Pink Prosecco is classified as ‘Extra Dry’ which is a wine variant that tastes slightly sweeter than regular Prosecco (but still with a satisfying dryness) and contains 12-17 grams of residual sugar per litre of liquid.
How long can you keep Pink Prosecco in the fridge?
We recommend drinking your bottle of “Pink Prosecco” within 24 hours of opening but you can purchase some very clever devices for resealing your bottle that will help to keep it fresh and fizzy for at least a few days.
How should you store Pink Prosecco?
Always store the sparkling wine bottles on their side to ensure that the wine inside the bottle remains in contact with the cork, keeping it moist. Keep all bottles away from bright light (both natural and artificial) and keep at a cool and constant temperature, ideally between 10-15°C.
At what temperature should you drink Pink Prosecco?
It’s best served chilled (7-10 °C) to ensure that you get the best fruity characteristics out of this sparkling wine.
