A RosÚ (From French: "RosÚ", Pinkish) is a type of wine that has some of the color typical of a red wine, but only enough to turn it pink. The pink color can range from a pale orange to a vivid near-purple, depending on the grapes and wine making techniques.

Historically rosÚ was quite a delicate, dry wine, exemplified by Anjou rosÚ from the Loire. In fact the original claret was a pale ('clairet') wine from Bordeaux that would probably now be described as a rosÚ.

After the Second World War, there was a fashion for medium-sweet rosÚs for mass-market consumption, the classic examples being Mateus RosÚ and American "blush" wines.

The pendulum now seems to be swinging back towards a drier, 'bigger' style. These wines are made from Rhone grapes like Syrah, in hotter regions such as the Languedoc and Australia. In France, rosÚ has now exceeded white wines in sales. In the United States a record 2005 California crop has resulted in an increased production and proliferation of varietals used for rosÚs, as winemakers chose to make rosÚ rather than leave their reds unsold. Consumers are also becoming more open to the wine, despite a stigma which resulted from the ubiquity of punchy White Zinfandels.
