Trying to strengthen blind tasting abilities for Rose.
Because so many countries and region use Garnacha (Rioja tends to use Garnacha as well as Navarra, more famous for Navarra rose wine from Garnacha) they are difficult to tell apart. Rioja might use some oak and age their garnacha rose longer... but what of Garnacha rose from Australia?
In terms of the global market, Pinot Noir rose from Sancerre seems to be popular, but lately it seems as if a lot of California winemakers are making Pinot Noir based rose wine.Does anyone notice other trends?
