2019 SUSANA BALBO Signature Rose 75cl (Mendoza, Argentina)
Style - Rosé
Grapes - Malbec, Pinot Noir
Tasting - Gorgeous, classy, restrained and dry. There's more than Provence when it comes to pale pinks it would seem. Melon and citrus lead the way in the elegantly crisp flavour profile. Extremely well polished edges and keeps a lovely freshness in the aftertaste.
FYI - Susana Balbo is a force to be reckoned with. After being forced to miss out on a place at university to study nuclear physics (it was the early 80s, military dictatorships get in the way of that sort of thing) she went on to become Argentina's first female oenologue. As well as having her own winery and range of wines she had a pop at running for President of the country a few years back too.
ABV - 13%
