How Rosé Wine is made?
The young rosé wine is developed as the same way than red one. With the same varieties and processes; that is, contrary to what some people may guess, rosé wine is not a coupage of red and white wines.
The difference in coloration is due to the maceration stage. The pigments that stain the wort, are located in the grape skin, so as the shorter will be the maceration with husks, the clearer will be the wine color.
Like the rest of the young wines, the Rosé one does not go to age into oak barrels, so it have to be consumed in the shortest time possible from their bottling. Rosé wines are more sensitive to sunlight and they can be degraded quickly than red ones. Because of this fact, young rosé wines have around 18 months lifespan, always, being extremely careful to expose them to sunlight.

These two types of grapes have a deep tropical fruit aroma, like banana or pineapple and they are fresh and tasty into the mouth. If young white wines are brought to ageing, they will develop hazelnut, almond or honey flavors, among others more herbaceous.
How White Wine is made?
According to the chronicles and ancient texts, the young white wine had been made and drunk since, at least, 2,500 years ago. As logic indicates, this kind of wine is elaborate from white grapes, although sometimes, it can be made from red ones.
This fact is possible because grape pulp, whatever the variety to which it belongs, lacks of pigments, so their juice has a very pale yellow-green color, almost transparent. The wort, only acquires color when grape skins macerate into it, because is in the skin, where color agents are concentrated. Thus, although is not the Bodegas Paniza case, in the global wine market is possible to find white wines made from red grapes; particularly in the range of sparkling wines, like Cava or Champagne.
The vines are, in general, more resistant than red varieties. The farming of white varieties is more widespread than the rest, because of the vines are adapted better to cold climates, especially in places like United Kingdom or Germany, where due to their weather, red varieties are hard to grow.
