The Rivadeniera family has always enjoyed drinking quality rosés at home. Recently, the winemakers have created their own magical rosé made from 50% Malbec, 40% Syrah, and 10% Petit Verdot. This wine’s bouquet is floral with subtle notes of grapefruit and spice. The palate is clean, crisp and well balanced with hints of cherry and wild strawberry. It is a versatile wine that pairs equally well with goat cheese, seafood, grilled chicken and delicately seasoned Asian dishes. Rosés are best enjoyed young, and South American Rosés are the freshest on the market.
Calcu Dry Rose
Winemaker Rodrigo Romero oversees the production of an exciting line of small production wines made for everyday drinking but yet far more interesting and distinctive than most in its category. Calcu, which means “healing doctor” in the local Mapuche language, was created to emphasize the diversity of Chile’s Colchagua Valley. The fruit is always a combination of the family’s estate fruit, and locally sourced, sustainable grapes from quality Colchagua growers.
