Rosť is the French term for describing pinkish-hued wines, but in the United States these same beverages are usually referred to as blush. Rosť wines are typically made from various types of red grapes and may gain their characteristic color through several different processes. One of the most common methods of producing a rosť is to leave the dark grape skins in contact with the juice for a short while, removing them from the vats much sooner than would be normal for a red wine. Rosť champagne, however, is typically created by adding a small amount of red wine to an effervescent white. A versatile beverage, rosť is said to go well with a variety of foods, especially light dishes, such as grilled fish, chicken, and salad, which are particularly popular in the summer and springtime.
