Crazy Value Wine: Mil Piedras Rosé

Posted by John Eckhart Posted on Jan - 15 - 2013

mil-piedras-malbec-roseDear Enotecans,

Quick Event Reminders:

We’re constantly hunting for new and delicious wines, and wine bargains.  This week we were specifically hunting for great bottles for our new Budget Wine Club, designed for those who want to enjoy fine wine on a budget.  (Learn more about joining here.)  We found some great values that we’re excited about introducing to Members over the next couple of months.  Join or add this to your subscription now to get in on the ground floor!

While we were hunting we came across an unreal value.  Good, quality quaffable dry Rosé has become mainstream in our area, we saw a lot of interest from wine drinkers in 2012 that we hadn’t seen before.  When we tasted this delicious, beautiful pink colored wine, that isn’t sweet at all, we knew we needed to recommend it.  When we found out it’s on sale, it became a must do.

Mil Piedras Malbec Rosé 2011

This is the perfect, classically styled dry Rosé well fitted for salads, seafood and pasta in cream sauce now, but perhaps more importantly perfect for spring time and summer quaffing.  Brilliantly ruby colored in the glass, it’s simply beautiful to look at.  The flavor is light and easy going, look for fresh strawberry flavors and aromas, cherry notes, and tropical fruit flavors like guava and passion fruit.  We’re stashing a couple cases right now so we’ll have perfect patio wine when the sun comes back.

100% Malbec

Regularly $10 or more per bottle.  Easily worth it at that price, but….

summer-flowerMore About Mil Piedras

Mil Piedras wines are made with estate-grown fruit from a single vineyard located in one of the most prestigious wine regions of  Argentina, Valle de Uco. Benvenuto de la Serna, maker of Mil Piedras, is a small family winery owned by Silvio Benvenuto (Italian immigrant) whose mission statement is to “make 100% estate and 100% handcrafted wines”.

This is from the Valle de Uco in Mendoza, Argentina.  Located at 1100 meters above sea level. Tucked away in the western most-end of Mendoza, the region has semi-desert climate with constant bright sun shines and very little rain fall.  This region has the most pristine environment for water supply, essential for the vines in the desert, which comes from fresh snowmelt off the Andes mountains directly next to the vineyard (literally).

The alluvial soil in this area is known for being extremely stony with predominately sand content, which allows the roots of the vines to reach incredibly deep into the ground while offering excellent drainage. With very large temperature swings between the hot days and cool nights, the vines yield to elegant wines that are noted by the smooth textured red fruit, bright acidity as well rounded tannins.
