Is there a difference between rose wine and blush wine?

No.





It is just marketing -- the word 'blush' was introduced in the USA for pink wines presumably because the traditional French term 'rose' (with an accent over the e and pronounced rose-ay') was misunderstood.





Calling it pink, rose, or blush is a marketing decision based on the winery,





Pink wines can be made in a number of ways, but the method of manufacture doesn't limit the winery what they can call the wine.Is there a difference between rose wine and blush wine?
not really


i don't like either


too tart for my tasteIs there a difference between rose wine and blush wine?
Yes. Just as red wines get their color from the grape skins, ros茅 wines are carefully produced by removing the skins just before the liquid is a deep red. The taste is always light, but most have overtones closer to reds.





Blush'; is displacing ';ros茅'; as the name given to pink wines, however the name ros茅 describes darker pink wines.


A blush is the result of ';bleeding'; ( saignee ) - removing some of the fluid to give more color and flavor.
