This is every thing I love about a Provincial Rose, except it's from South America. I'm always so happy to find new expressions of my favorite classics. It smelled like fresh, ripe white peaches and juicy sunkissed strawberries. The acid was mouthwatering. This wine reminded me of a warm summer evening.

Yum! Peach, melon, citrus and floral notes. A juicy, crisp and delicious blend of Malbec and Pinot Noir. Yeah that's right, when was the last time you had wine with those two varietals?

In two words, simply delicious! Pretty and bright with a grapefruit and jasmine nose. Clean and bright on the palate nectarine, grapefruit and lime. Wonderful finish with a touch of saline and peach. So perfect for hit summer days and either sipping alone or with salumi and hard cheeses. Yum!

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Malbec

- These days if you're drinking a Malbec it's probably from Argentina. The most planted grape in that country, varietally-labeled Argentine Malbecs are one of the wine market's great values, prized for their slight herbal component and dark, luscious fruit. Structurally, Argentina's Malbecs are much different than those grown in the grape's native France; they are riper, fruitier and fleshier. In France, the best iterations of Malbec can be found in the Cahors, where it can be quite decadent. It is also planted in the Loire Valley, where it is called Côt and is often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon or Gamay, and in Bordeaux, where it has fallen from favor in many of the region's great blends because it is difficult to grow. In the United States, the varietal is frequently added to Meritage wines - Bordeaux style blends - but it is rarely found on its own.
Country:

Argentina

- Argentina is regarded as one of the most dynamic wine-producing nations in the world, and possibly the most important wine-producing region in South America. Only four countries in the world produce more wine than Argentina. Considerable investments (much of which has come from famous French, Italian and California wine producers) have been made in new vineyards and winemaking technology in the past several years, which along with recent plantings of more premium varieties of grapes, has made Argentina much more competitive internationally. The Mendoza region is the most important region in Argentina's wine industry. And Malbec, among other Bordeaux varietals grown here, reigns supreme.
