Wine of the Week: Santa Julia Innovac!ón Malbec-Syrah Rosé 2014

A member winery of the Familia ZuccardiSanta Julia is an Argentinian winery that works with grape varieties such as Malbec, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Viognier, Pinot Grigio and Tempranillo. There is a focus on two types of sustainability: almost all of their vineyards are certified organic, which protects the productivity of the soil long term; they also look at it in relation to the community, supporting economic and cultural development in Mendoza. In the case of the rosé, it's also a vegan friendly wine. We picked this up at one of our local Whole Foods stores.

Wine of the Week: Santa Julia Innovac!ón Malbec-Syrah Rosé 2014

Tasting Notes:
Handpicked 50% Malbec, 50% Syrah; beautiful bright coral red color; red berry, subtle citrus and cassis aromas; tart red berry, melon, cassis into a citrus finish; 10,000 cases produced; cork closure; SRP $10 (liter bottle).
Nice hefty, dry rosé that was particularly good with food - it has a depth and meatiness to it that can stand up to bigger flavors. Since it's a bigger bottle you can enjoy more of it before having to open a new bottle.
