Cuvelier Los Andes Rose 2018 - Rose
Today the vineyard of Cuvelier Los Andes stretches over 55 hectares (136 acres) with 10 hectares still to plant. Our vineyards seem to have found a privileged place on this terrain of alluvial stones and sands, basking in the warm, dry climate of Mendoza, cooled by the refreshing night air of the Andes, our vines are ideally situated to express the character of their various grape varieties in this stony, alluvial gravel soil. Faithful to it’s French origins, Cuvelier Los Andes created this Rosé with the goal of producing a Côtes de Provence-style Rosé but with 100% Malbec. Using same Malbec grape growing on same terroir, creating a different expression of Malbec. This direct press Rosé is fresh and balanced with intense floral aromatics.
This very attractive rose has a beautiful pale salmon color with pink hues. Full of pleasurable sensations transporting effusive notes of citrus, Provençal flowers and fresh fruit such as apricots and peach. Mouth: Medium-intensity with impressively fresh and juicy, crisp finish and easy to drink. Very inviting to drink.
Rosé wine and sunshine go hand-in-hand, and are tailor-made for the sort of aperitif that can allow you to sit back and watching the world go by on an early summer evening. It’s ideal to sip together with tapenade or a salade Niçoise, a saffron paella while forking bite after bite of calamari. Also a match made in heaven when it comes to grilled fish, fresh greens or chicken. But also a delicious wine to enjoy with sushi, light snacks and goats’ cheeses. Drink your Rosé now- who knows what tomorrow will bring!!!
