Food Pairings for Crios de S. Balbo Rose of Malbec Mendoza
Marvelous rose' from Susana Balbo and yet another lesson on the flexibility of the Malbec grape. The dominant fruit is strawberries, not cherries. Perhaps we are so used to invoking cherries and red currants in our reviews of this useful grape that we forget to look for the more subtle fruits that emerge from the process of making rose's. When I asked one of my favorite wine merchants (Rick Lewis of the Madison CTWine shop) to name some of his favorite rose's, his selection was overweighted toward Provence. He included Balbo's Rose' and we marveled at the colour and accessibility on the palate. And then the strawberries. What a mistake to exclude Rose's from the well rounded cellar. Include this one.
Nice for a summer red
I decided to get into roses this summer, and of those that I have tried so far, the Crios is the most enjoyable. Deep pink color for a rose, and neither too sweet nor too dry. Wonderful summer wine at a decent price.
External Reviews for Crios de S. Balbo Rose of Malbec Mendoza
This rosé is deep cherry in color and made from the Malbec grape variety, which has been absolutely thriving in Argentina's Mendoza region lately. This is very easy to drink: ripe, soft, and full of dark berry fruit on the palate - black cherries and red currants. Susana Balbo and her husband have been making wine in Argentina for over 25 years, producing many excellent wines that are well worth a try.
