Alcohol: 13.2%
Production: 101 cases
Date Tasted: May 11th, 2013

Tasting Notes: Bold, both in hue and in flavour, the River Stone Malbec Rosé is one of the more colourful and fuller-bodied blush wines on the market in BC today. Juicy and ripe cran-apple, pomegranate and strawberry flavours are supported by light tannins and grapefruit acidity. The finish is moderate but well balanced with lingering mineral notes and other hints of the wine's terroir like sage and bay leaves. Has the body and acid to age longer than your average rosé, but to no real benefit. Best to enjoy this fun wine in its youth. Drink 2013-2015.
