Fresh and pure, “the best rosé in Argentina” (c) Decanter Silver and Bronze Medals.

This fabulous Rosé won perhaps the highest praise from experts: “The best Rosé in Argentina? Either way, this is super-fresh and pure with more floral and candied citrus notes than red berries plus a stunning balance of racy acidity and mineral freshness. Made from Malbec and Pinot noir. Drink now.” – 92/100 James Suckling. It is winner of Silver and Bronze medals, and will be a delicious pairing for salmon or Asian spicy food.

  1. Sarah

    I love this one, perfect for sunny lunches and evenings. Has a confident, cool, dry impact but supported by just enough fruit and then leaves you with a long finish. Very distinctive, lots of personality.

  2. Keith

    One of the rare examples of a rosé that is not only light and fresh and good for summer drinking (it is all of those things) but also demonstrates lighter versions of the characteristics of the grape. Malbec, coming through with floral blossom and very slight candy flavours on the palette, but not overpowering and the berry fruit flavours dominate to keep it refreshing and summery. Great character and length.
