Tapiz Malbec Rosé
Tapiz Rosé ia a 100% Malbec from San Pablo Single Vineyard, Uco Valley, Mendoza. The wine gains its intensity from cold maceration with the must in contact with the Malbec grapes for 24 hours; fermentation is then with selected yeasts at a low temperature.
Intense rosé colour; a seductive nose with a full fruit character, touches of ripe cherries and delicate floral hues. Fresh, balanced with a long aftertaste.
