Cristobal "Malbec-Rosé" - 2023

Item # 20369 750mL

The Malbec grape was once popular in Bordeaux but these days it is mostly associated with Argentina. Here we have a rosé made of the bold Malbec grape coming from the Mendoza region. It is dry yet full of red berry fruit aromas. With a chill, it is as crisp and delicious as any rosé we've tasted.

Staff Pick Notes

You may be asking yourself, Rosè in the fall? I say, “Why Not?” This beautifully colored Rosè is one for all seasons. It’s a mild mannered wine that’s light, dry, with red berries on the nose and palate and is very easy going down.

So, I say, let’s join them and send a toast to the Argentineans that have done this Malbec right :)

Many grapes flourish here, but none have been as commercially successful as Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. One of the great undiscovered gems is Torrontés, a fresh, aromatic white variety that is best enjoyed young. The red Bonarda grape is another approachable yet little-known variety that thrives here.
