Sparkling rosé wine

Sparkling Rosé wine is a type of wine that is fizzy, and can range in color from vibrant pink to salmon-orange. Sparkling rosé wines are made in all parts of the world, including the Champagne region, though those are called Rosé Champagne. 

The pink color of sparkling rosé wine can occur from two different methods. A producer can either add still red wine to the white sparkling wine to make it pink in color, or they can do what is called saignée -- fermenting the wine with the skins of red grapes for a few days until enough color is present in the wine, then "bleeding" the wine off the skins. 

In general, the more pink a sparkling rosé wine is, the more primary fruit flavors (cherry, strawberry, raspberry) it has. More salmon colored wines typically have more earthy, gamy flavors and less vibrant fruit.
