2017 Viña Maquis "Calcu" Rosé Colchagua Valley

SKU #1342728

This is a delicious, fresh, crisp, easy drinking rosé. Red fruits at times present a nearly candied quality on the palate, but it does not detract in the slightlest from the refreshing qualities of the wine; in fact it seems to enhance them. Delicious stuff! Produced from 90% malbec, 10% petit verdot.

When you look at the back of this bottle and read 90% Malbec, 10% Petit Verdot, you are expecting quite the pop of flavor out of this little bottle. But I have to say, it surprised me how elegant and understated this wine is! The color is quite light, and the style is very much in keeping with the dry, French rose traditions from Provence. The delicate aromas are of peach, cherry and cranberry. On the palate the wine is dry, with the fruit following through and balancing out the tangy acidity. A lovely little wine, and well worth the modest price!

This lovely rose from the Colchagua Valley impressed and surprised me. This clean, refreshing, slightly grassy wine has a high quality, subtle red fruit character in the middle, but finishes completely dry. Fans of the provencal style will not be going wrong with this great offering from Vina Maquis! I thought that Malbec and Petite Verdot made wine that is too heavy for refreshing rose, and had never thought of Chile as a place for world class pink wine... I was wrong on both counts!

Additional Information:

Country:

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.
