Wine: Alma Negra Sparkling Rosé Malbec

Alma Negra Sparkling Rosé Malbec

So, you’re probably familiar with malbec and know it to be a tasty, full red wine with deep, inky-dark color.  Would you believe that you can get a sparkling rosé wine out of it?  Well, not only can you get a sparkling rosé out of it, but you can get a downright awesome sparkling rosé from it.

Enter, Alma NegraSparkling Rosé Malbec.  This wine, like much malbec that we see in the US these days, comes from Mendoza, Argentina.  The winery is relatively young, starting with the 2003 vintage, although the vineyards where the grapes for this wine were grown have been planted for 18-20 years.

Calling this rosé may even be a stretch.  It looks more like a sparkling white, but there is the slightest pink hue to the color.  It is quite amazing to come from a grape normally known for its deep purple colors.

The nose offers a beautiful and harmonious blend of yeast, floral, lemon peel and raspberry aromas.  The palate is equally beautiful, with a mineral and citrus flavor that just tastes clean and refreshing.  It has a wonderfully creamy mouth feel too.  The floral notes return on the finish, which is also has a touch of salt essence.  This is a superb bottle of bubbles.
