Zuccardi, Alma 4, Pinot Rosé 2012, Mendoza, Argentina
Tasting Note: This pinot-noir based rosé sparkling wine with only a faint tinge of pink color has a nose of just-ripened strawberry and a hint of peach.
On the palate the wine is light and refreshing.
While not complex, it his all the right notes that his the spot on a warm evening.
Medium-plus acidity and body make this bottle a joy to drink at 12.5% alcohol here in Mendoza where sun-driven alcohol levels regularly play in the 15%+ zone.
The second-fermentation was completed in the bottle.
A smart buy if you can find it.
