2012 Apaltagua Rosé Central Valley (Previously $12)

SKU #1130035

A Carmenere-based rosé, clearly the grapes have been picked a bit earlier to preserve acidity, though somehow the strong, tell tale herbaceous quality of this grape variety is barely present. Instead, this beautifully colored, light pink hued rosé shows bright red fruited aromatics, with terrific acidity and a nearly white wine like personliaty. Not a simple strawberry/watermelon/bubble yum bomb of a rosé - this is sure to be one of the classier dry style rosés of the season. (Joe Manekin, K&L South American Wine Buyer)

Yes, you can have some really meaningful, deep conversations over tea, or maybe a cup of coffee, but a bottle of rose shared between friends with nothing more to share the space, except for honest conversation and simple nibbles...can really be one of those little things, that ends up being a big thing in the end. This is one of those honest wines that is just that. A solid, beautiful, easy libation. And in then end, I think that is what a lot of us want at the end of the day, something solid, beautiful, and easy peasy. Bonus if you can find it for under $15 and it comes in a screw cap.

Chile

- Located on the western coast of South America and bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Andes to the East, the Chilean wine-growing climate is similar to that of California's Napa Valley and Bordeaux. The Chilean wine industry is known for being consistently free of phylloxera, but political and economic unrest has brought its own source of disorder. The recent establishment of a free market has resuscitated the wine industry, and significant investments have been made, switching the economic focus from domestic production to exports. Chile produces roughly a quarter of the wine Argentina produces, and is known for single-varietal exports, predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. It's a popular region in the U.S. known for inexpensive and tasty wine. Click for a list of bestselling items from Chile.
