Grapes: 100 % Malbec
This rosé wine from Alta Vista is an elegant expression of our freshest Malbec grapes. With a lovely floral bouquet, the wine possesses great balance and fruitiness on the palate, providing an excellent introduction to the fresh, fruit-forward characteristics and overall quality of wines from Argentina. Our rosé wine is made utilizing two different maceration techniques and a low-temperature vinification that enhances the freshness of the fruit. The two wines are then blended before clarification and stabilization. Finally, the wine is filtered and bottled.

Winter of 2017 started a bit later following a fairly unusual wet autumn. Temperatures dropped to below freezing levels allowing for a complete cleansing of bugs, pest, disease and bacteria giving space for regeneration. Spring was unusual in that it was particularly dry. Towards the end of spring in the month of November, the region was hit by an unexpected frost which affected production. Summer 2017 will go down as the warmest on record for the last 50 years with peak temperatures reaching 129 degrees Fahrenheit! This effectively sped up ripening and as a result, harvesting as well. Despite the heat, the grapes were healthy and crunchy with no loss of aromatics. The wines are bright, aromatic, and well structured.
A beautiful wine to the sight, due to delicate pink hues. In the nose, it has a medium to high intensity, with prevailing fruity aromas such as ripe and sour cherries. It also shows floral notes such as red roses. In the mouth, it has a persistent, fresh flavor and is markedly balanced.
Wonderful accompaniment to pastas with light sauces and bright, fresh salads.
