"Natural" Malbec Rosé - 2017 Swanpool Vic
Made on a whim as an experiment by our friend and Malbec grower Mark Foletta, this rosé overcame even Marshall's "natural wine" scepticism!
As the 2017 Malbec fruit arrived at the winery, Mark took some of the free-run juice and set it aside to see what would happen. It was left untouched until we added a small amount of sulphites for bottling, which happened at our East Brunswick store.
The result is a rosé with bright rasberry-like fruit, big mouth-filling texture and a long, savoury palate. It's wonderfully refeshing and super more-ish.
If this is what we get from the free-run juice, we can't wait to taste our 2017 Malbec red!
