And Sercial of course, being a white grape, would make a white wine. After the oxidation it's more amber than white though.

Sercial is the name of a white grape. Fortifed wine is a wine which a distilled spririt has been added, usually brandy. They are red and white. Rose used some skins to add color but not enough to be a red wine.
