Matias Riccitelli - 2019 Hey! Rose Malbec
Matías Riccitelli started his winery in 2009, located in Las Compuertas at 1100 meters above sea level. Mendoza is high up as it is, and the fruit is unbelievably flavoursome consequently – compact, dense, rich! However here, it is the highest area of Lujan de Cuyo! So you can imagine the concentration. He tends to 20 hectares of ungrafted old vineyards, of many varieties but most proudly, Malbec. This Rosé is as fun as it looks, but don't let the playfulness fool you. It is savoury, sumptuous in the palate, and cruises into seafood dinners or antipasti platters with charm and ease. Yum.
