Enter, Alma Negra Rosé Malbec. This wine, like much malbec that we see in the US these days, comes from Mendoza, Argentina. The winery is relatively young, starting with the 2003 vintage, although the vineyards where the grapes for this wine were grown have been planted for 18-20 years.
Calling this a rosé may even be a stretch. It looks more like a sparkling colorless, but there is the slightest pink hue to the affect. Quite incredible to come from a grape normally known for its deep purple
The nose offers a beatiful and harmonious blend of yeast, floral, lemon peel and raspberry aromas. The palate is equally gorgeous, with a mineral and citrus flavor that just tastes clean and refreshing. It has a wonderfully creamy mouth feel too. The floral notes return on the end, which is also a touch salty. This is a superb bottle of bubbly.
The suggested retail fee is above our habitual $20 limit, but I have seen this wine for as low as $16 at retail. And the creepy face on the mark is an added bonus.
