Choosing a good white wine isn't helpful if you serve it poorly. Good wines can be undermined by being served poorly while mediocre wines can really shine if served correctly. The correct wine glass allows you to best experience those flavors and aromas.
Serving white wine at the right temperature can be more important to getting the most out of a wine than just about any other factor. Serving white wine that's too warm or too cold can make even the best wine taste bad while mediocre wines can really shine if you hit just the right temperature spot. The basic rule of thumb is to serve white wines at lower temperatures and red wines at slightly higher temperatures. Sparkling wines are served the coldest while ports and fortified wines are served the warmest.
Successful wine and food pairing can be daunting, but it's worth experimenting with matching wine and food because the right combination creates flavors that are vastly superior to how the wine and food taste independently. There are many different factors to consider when pairing food and wine, but first it's helpful to look at the big picture: the different levels of success or failure one can achieve when pairing wine with food, from poor to refreshing, good, and synergistic pairings.
A rosé wine is wine made from red-skinned grapes where the grape juice has only been in contact with the red skins long enough (usually two or three days) to give the wine a slight coloring. A rosé wine is a wine that could have been made as a red wine, but the wine maker decided to create a lighter wine instead — not just lighter in color, but also lighter in flavors, aromas, and tannins. The color of a rosé wine can range from just barely pink to dark and coppery.
It's easier to appreciate and understand the tastes of red wines if you are familiar with the sorts of flavors normally associated with red wines. The flavors and aromas people identify in a red wine are not precise, because no one adds pepper, licorice, or leather to red wine while making it. Instead people identify flavors and aromas based on what they are reminded of while tasting the wine. This is why it helps to know what you might be looking for by being familiar with red wine flavors and aromas.
