Zemlia Malbec Rosé 2009, Mendoza, Argentina

The nice thing about the Argentine Malbec Rosés I have been writing about recently is that the typical taste has not yet been defined, and I note perceptible differences from one to another.  So if you have tried one, you can’t say you have tried them all.  The Zemlia Malbec Rosé from 2009 starts off with a strawberry, raspberry moves in and so does some good earthy notes.

This wine is a bit less sweet than most Malbec Rosés, and those raspberry notes influence the taste palate.  The wine shows noticable acid, and features a good dry texture.  I recommend this wine for somebody who knows and loves Mendoza Malbec, but might not be likely to leave the wine shop with a bottle of rosé.

Musical Match: I have paired this wine with a DJ remix of Gypsy music by Steve Angello.  Gyspy music has a dry sense to it, has very earthy undertones but usually comes out sounding happy.  This wine is less sweet than others, and is a modern twist on a classic. Give it a listen!

Special thanks to the Wines of Argentina for providing me transportation, great lodging, amazing food and access to the wonderful wine and winemakers of Mendoza and Cafayate during a promotional tour of Argentina for 10 days in July 2011. This wine was sampled during that promotional tour.
