Tapiz Malbec Rosé Extra Brut

93
Tapiz
Fanciful Name: Rosé Extra Brut
Varietal: Malbec
Country of Origin: Argentina
Appellation: Mendoza
Retail Price: $20.00

Tasting Notes: As Argentina's best-known red variety, malbec is usually quite dark. But this bright-pink sparkling wine may just change your mind about malbec. With nearly a year on the lees during the secondary fermentation, the wine has developed a lovely, complex profile. The red-fruit aspect, with cherry and strawberry, is complemented by the bright finish.
