Susana Balbo Signature Rose 2018
A lovely pale salmon pink color and a fine florality, with hints of wild strawberry and cherry. This wine shows freshness and clarity, with crunchy acidity, redcurrant and strawberry flavors, and a pithy, refreshing finish. This will be very good both as an aperitif and with food, due to the tension on the palate.
This wine pairs beautifully with smoked salmon, Asian spicy food, grilled poultry, and hard cheeses.
Blend: 60% Malbec and 40% Pinot Noir.

Pale bronze in colour and every bit as distinguished as the 2018 release, this cuvée of Malbec with 40% Pinot Noir is balanced and fine with subtle rosehip and wild strawberry flavours and a crunchy dry finish. 2019-21
With a winning combination of cool weather, high elevation and well-draining alluvial soils, it is no surprise that Mendoza’s Uco Valley is one of the most exciting up-and-coming wine regions in Argentina. Healthy, easy-to-manage vines produce low yields of high-quality fruit, which in turn create flavorful, full-bodied wines with generous acidity.
Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color depends on grape variety and winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta.
