In 1975, Sutter Home's " White Zinfandel " wine experienced a stuck fermentation, a problem in which the yeast goes dormant, or in some cases dies off before all the sugar is turned to alcohol. The depth of color was dependent on the amount red wine added with the red wine having more influence on the resulting flavor of the wine if added in larger volumes. While they still have a presence in the European and US markets, the trend towards traditional, drier ross as well as the development of American "blush" wines like White Zinfandel have cut into their market shares. While its rival, Mateus, is mostly still found in Europe, Lancers has remained in the North American market. 1 Today, White Zinfandels are considered part of the "blush wine" category of noticeably sweet, pale pink wines that often have very slight carbonation to give the wine a balance of acidity and some "liveliness". Mead visited Mill Creek Vineyards in Sonoma County, California. 1 See also: Color of wine Ross can come in a variety of colors depending on the grape variety and method of production.

While many wineries have been able to produce critically acclaimed ros using the saigne method, its use has provoked criticism from wine personalities such as Franois Millo, president of the Provence Wine Council (civp) who claim that saigne method ross are not true ross" because. There the juice receives its period of brief skin contact with the crushed red skins on the bottom before the lightly colored free-run juice is then drained off, like a saignee, and the wine then fermented as normal. 1 2, when ros wine is the primary product, it is produced with the skin contact method. At wine pH (typically.9-4.0 most of the grape anythocyanins are in the colorless form unless they have reacted with tannins or other molecules (such as tannins also extracted from the skin as well as grape seeds, stems and from oak wine barrels ). He decided to try making a more fully sparkling ros that was sweeten to appeal to the mass European and North American markets.
So producers wishing to make ros work to not only limit the amount of anthocyanins extracted into the wine but also limit the wines exposure to tannins (either by less maceration time, gentle pressing of the grapes or use only stainless tanks instead of oak).
