They have scents of things like citrus, herbs, and fruit -- all things that you would find in veggie or seafood dishes. Rosé Rosé wines are similar in calorie content to whites. They also pair nicely with veggie dishes, pastas and fish, and can be really refreshing on a warm day. They can vary quite a bit in flavor. This rosé is very mild and has hints of strawberries, while this rosé from France has bolder flavors that can hold up to bigger flavors that you would find in tomato sauces and salmon. Red Reds also range in flavor from fruity to spicy and can have aromas of leather, flowers and wood. Big flavorful reds like this cabernet sauvignon go with steak, lamb and beef stews. This pinot noir is a lot lighter and more delicate in flavor, so you can serve it with dishes like roasted pork with rosemary or a salmon with pomegranate glaze. Sparkling Sparkling wines white, rosé and red are all great for summer cooking -- like grilling and barbecue. They also go great with desserts and make a great pair with spicier ethnic foods like Asian and Mexican. This champagne is dry and has apple notes, so it's great to serve with this apple sorbet and this prosecco has sweeter flavors like raspberries, so it would be great with sweet and spicy barbecue chicken.
