Bodega Santa Rosa, Zuccardi

Santa Rosa is the original wine estate established by Zuccardi, an hour’s drive south east of Mendoza in Argentina. There is a progressive move to organic farming with 50% of the 500ha estate now converted. Such are the desert conditions, evaporation is strong and without irrigation the vines would die very quickly. There is a large difference in temperature between night and day which ensures the grapes maintain a wonderful freshness. The grapes are harvested by hand, gently pressed and then fermented in stainless steel tanks at 16-18 ° C. There is a short 4-6 hour maceration resulting in a very pretty Provencal salmon pink colour, a welcome relief from the heavier South American roses on the market.
Aromas of ripe red fruits, blackberries, raspberries and jam from strawberries. Balanced palate, with sweet tannins in harmony with acidity. The finish is delicate and fruity.
Delicious with roast pork.
